I can do this!

Tomorrow it's back to school for me!  Every morning at school a group of 4 boys comes to my room to say good morning, and to say, "I can do this!"  "What can you do?," I ask them.  Their responses vary from I can "do good" on spelling to I can be a better reader, or just plain 'ol, "I can do THIS."  This holiday has been a wonderful, restful, fun, renewing time.  After being able to sleep a bit longer in the mornings, and not follow a schedule, I'm having to tell myself, "I can do this!"  So ... one last peek at some of those Christmas projects.  Then it will be on to new things.

A quick but fun project this season was to make a few hanging hand towels.  The tutorial for this can be found here.

 And last, but not least is this little cutie.  Check out this site for the pattern for this and other forest friends.


  1. You made the squirrel?! I thought it was from a store, good job! :-D

    Some day I'm going to have a nature-themed Christmas tree, and he'll definitely be on it!

  2. Looks like you made good use of your holiday. The towels are pretty, and that squirrel is so the embroidered details very much.
