Hello and welcome to our new set of challenging monthly projects :D

It's becoming colder outside (ok, in our half of the globe :giggle: ) plus the holiday season is just around the corner so we are proposing two very practical projects. By completing them you will be set with at least two gifts to give to your loved ones. If not for anything else but this I hope we will have at least as many entries as we had in previous month.

1st challenging project - (fleece) hats

I was really happy to see quite a few tutorials on the subject on deviantArt. As you can see there are many great ways to make a fleece hat and all of them have one thing in common - they are very simple to make.

For those of you who never had a needle in your hand .. don't be affraid! Below you will find an explanation of the stitches and trust me, hand sewing is really really easy :nod:

So... here are some of the hat tutorials... I think you'll get the picture quickly :)

2nd challenging project - Holiday Ornaments

:xmas: :xmas: :xmas:

We all need them every year and why not make them by ourselves?

Here are links to some amazing ornament tutorials. I'm pretty sure you can all find something nice for you to make - I know I did. There are even quite a few for wire wrapped ornaments which means you can continue using your newly developed wire wrapping skills :D

Loads of different suggestions:… and…

Tree ornaments made from scraps - great looking ones indeed:…

Another great reason to participate

If you are only thinking about participating in this month's challenges I give you a very good reason to actually do it. It's a special Christmas Tree Decoration Contest in which you get to make someone very happy and pleasantly surprised. Do enter!

Submitting your works

This will be done the same as in October. Send us a note titled Project Submission and I'll upload them every Friday as we move towards the end of the month.

Chat room meetings during week-ends

Do come in the chat room and stay for a while - someone is bound to come in and help you if you have a question. You can be there and just chat as well. Isn't that cool? :giggle:

Now go and dig into our challenging challenges. I'm really curious to see the results!

Yours trully,
