I'm not ready for Christmas weekend to end. I don't feel like it's time to go back to work yet. So I am going to share with you a few ornaments from our tree.. some have special meaning/sentiment and some I just really like.. and there really are so many more.. but here are a few.
This one I stitched myself, from a freebie I think, not sure how many years ago. I just think he's cute.
This is a neat one my mom gave me- I love snowmen and old looking ornaments so this one is a favorite.
This one I received from Deb in Kentucky from an exchange a few years ago. This one is from a freebie from a UK stitching magazine I think.
My grandma stitched this one for me, along with two or three other ones with a similar theme.
I received this one this Christmas from a pen pal of mine whom I've been writing to for years- since high school at least, I think!
I dont' really remember where this little wooden Santa came from.. I just like him.
Another one my mom gave me...
I bought this one when I was in grade school- it is looking pretty rough, but it is a mouse sleeping in a half a walnut shell-her little quilt is real fabric. I bought it at a "Christmas fair"- where your parents give you money and the gym has a bunch of craft-type things for kids to buy for their families as presents. I still love this ornament--maybe I should touch up her paint..
My dad made this one..
A Prairie Schooler freebie I stitched several years ago..
A berry ornament I bought in historic St. Charles, MO (one of my favorite places)
My mom made this one for me along with a couple of other pretty ones.
And my friend Rhoda asked about Hanna's stocking - I stitched hers years ago- I don't remember when I finished it, if it was before or after her first Christmas- but here it is. It was from an issue of Cross Stitch and Needlework(or it may have been called Cross Stitch and Country Crafts then)- I looked for a similar one for David but never found one I really liked, so I went with Shepherds Bush.
Well I hope you enjoyed my little pictorial! lol And for those of you heading back to work/normal routine tomorrow- just remember you aren't alone! ;)
