One Thimble Issue 5

I have a very strict “No Christmas Before Thanksgiving” rule. I just broke it.

One Thimble Issue 5

Have you heard of One Thimble e-mag before? Such a beautiful magazine style collaboration! This is their fifth edition AND one year anniversary. It’s based out of Australia, so this special holiday edition has a fantastic beach vibe that feels so exciting and exotic to those of us in the Northern Hemisphere.

I had a chance to sew up the Rustic Reindeer Bunting and Ralphie Reindeer from the latest issue. This completely goes against my defense of Thanksgiving. See, my birthday is that week, and I just don’t want Christmas to invade until after. But then, once that Friday comes, it’s open season on festivities. If the whole month was filled with nothing but crafts and baking and good smells and cozy sweaters, I would be okay with that. But real life still takes place, and there are years I forget to decorate until December 20th. Not this year.
