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.


  1. so good to see a blog from you again Kippy. Such a cute hexie, a lovely idea. thanks for ther comments you leave me on my blog, there is no way to reply to them as you do not have a link back to yourself.

    1. ah! thank you Margaret! I will pay attention when I leave a comment that you can reply :)

  2. I can almost feel the fragrance from the cinnamon and ginger! Happy 'baking'!
