My brain can't take all these ideas floating around. Must move forward.

Does anyone else get a project started and then finds something completely different that they want to try and it kind of sidetracks them for just a little while?
That's definitely me!
The Hexie Caddy is coming along, but I get sidetracked when I see all these other tutorials, and I'm thinking, "Oh I need to try that!"
All these fun little crafts are just so darn cute, I can't even wrap my brain around the fact that I actually have to finish one to move onto the next one. DUHH!

I recently made a ACU fabric wreath for my mother as a Christmas gift and that was such a fun project. My brother is overseas right now serving a tour for the U.S Army, and my mom was very upset that he could not spend the Holidays with us. I wanted to give her a little something to let her know that even though he wasn't with us, he was missed this holiday season.

Here it is:

I was searching some other blogs this morning and stumbled upon something similar to this wreath but instead you take the fabric and glue it to an ornament. Her's is done with burlap, but you could easily change it to ACU's or BDU's to make it for a military family. How fun would that be to make military fabric ornaments for family members of the deployed soldiers around Christmastime.
Here is the link for anyone who wants to try this one.
