with Thanksgiving

another ornament...this one was supposed to be  a chicken...but looks more like a turkey methinks

I enjoyed the embroidery, beading and picot - making...

and am so thankful, for so much...
in fact, when I count all my blessing from God, there is no room for the worry  which unceasingly seeks to creep in...

but cannot,

when I praise His Holy name, in Thanksgiving :D

Ornaments! Advent and Christmas

it has a been a while since my last post, but I have time to publish a few ornaments I recently made ~

perhaps one will inspire you to make some too :)

For this ornament, I cut 2 hexagons (approx. 4 inches wide); one of gingerbread colored felt, and the other a bit larger (to include seams) of small red and white gingham  -

embellishing the felt top with beads, lace, ribbon, a bit of embroidery -

then, started to sew it all up with pearl cotton and beads...stuffing with wool as I went, and sewing in some ribbon at the top for hanging...and added little mulberry paper roses at the top.

Luke 1:4  That thou mightest know the certainty of those things wherein thou hast been instructed.
