I was shocked the other day when I dragged myself down to the mailbox in the blowing wind and rain to find a mysterious package there for me.....It was from my dear friend Tommye and take a look at what she had made for me....I had been admiring many finished ornies on her blog of late, but had no idea at all that one was headed to my house!!! Thank you so VERY much Tommye for your generosity~~ You know I LOVE La-D-Da and this pattern from the JCS ornament issue is a total eye catcher...Your stitching is flawless and I love your finish!! I will enjoy this ornament for many many years to come~~~
Then on Thursday of this week I received a wonderful giveaway I was so fortunate to win from Staci...........Just look at that darling felted heart ornament she made and all the wonderful ribbon trims (you know what I like Staci!!) ...And check out the tarnished jingle bells and safety pins...... Thank you so very much Staci for this fantastic giveaway........... I certainly love anything RED!!!!
Staci has a tutorial on her blog for those of you interested in antiquing any of your embellishments....go check it out~~~
Here is what my two new ornaments look like on the tree in my craft room.................
Thank you ladies for making my day~~~~
I am headed back to finish up some sewing for last minute ornaments myself.... I am running very late this year in getting things finished so a couple gifts will be coming right down to the wire...................
Just five days until Christmas....Make it a great week~~~
