I can't claim that as my own idea anyway...I saw it in a book about salt dough creations that I borrowed from the library a while back.  Hers were much bigger and more elaborate, but I loved the concept!

I finally have pictures of my WIPs to share...

And I'm *still* working on the play mat for my nephew (I actually have two cut out, so I'll probably do the second one for my own as-yet-unborn son).  I swear I'll finish it before Christmas!  I think I got a bit discouraged working on it 'cause I ran out of thread several times already (satin stitch takes a lot of thread!)  There's actually quite a bit more done than in this picture...I just haven't gotten around to taking a new picture yet.




I've been sewing my daughter's fall wardrobe so I won't have to worry about it once the baby comes. I'm nearly finished, and then I'll get back to Christmas crafting in earnest!


Are you using a tutorial for the playmat?  If so, could you share.  I want to make a couple of these for Christmas gifts.

It's basically just a bunch of applique. I saw it done in a craft book I checked out from the library -- a late 60's craft book.  Then I taped together some newspaper and drew my "streets" and "islands" and made my pattern from that.  All the fabric came from my stash, but you could easily go shopping in the remnant bin at your favorite fabric store...or even buy fat quarters.  I'm going to back mine like a quilt...probably with batting inbetween, although I haven't totally decided yet.

that's a beautiful idea! my older boys have one of those car/roads playmats which are basically paint on office scratchy carpet on a flaky foam back - Eurgh! i might have to try to get my thinking cap on and join you all here on the holiday crusade (late starter, i know! in every way!)

I just wanted to share my new idea for Christmas cards. I've been having lots of fun working on these Gingerbread cards today.


The gingerbread people are little metal brads that I found online. They're adorable!
