So, I hope it won't offend anyone if I blog about Christmas (already!). I just wanted to share that I found these awesome Ethiopian-themed Christmas ornaments, which are available here.

By buying one, you'd also be helping this lovely family raise money for their adoption. It's a win-win.
Also, this year I plan on continuing my tradition of making something for Christmas that's 'heirloom quality' - something that I will pass along to my kids... and hopefully their kids. Last year, it was this advent calendar/quilt. This year, these Nordic (wool) felt birds captured my heart.

You can get the kit here. The kit contains the wool felt, embroidery thread, embroidery needles, fabric marker, pattern and instructions. It looks like they are already selling out of certain colors, so if you want one, don't wait. I got the kit in the mail today and am so happy with it.
Okay, I promise no more Christmas blogging until after Thanksgiving.
