An Ornament a Week: Week 2

Hello! I have found a minute or two! Hello! Hello!

Thanks so much to everyone who took the time to wish me Happy Birthday yesterday. I have officially reached the mid forties and it feels pretty good. This is the age my grandmother said she felt when she was 90 so I better enjoy it as it's an enviable age amongst the elders!

DH made a gorgeous cheese cake (my favourite and I'm lucky to usually get one for my birthday) and I would have taken a picture of it but I barely paused long enough to blow out the candles before diving into it let alone had time for a picture. There's one piece left and it's mine, all mine.

I've remained vigilant to my ornament challenge (how are you doing, K in Winterpeg?). Here is ornament number two based on the tutorial in the link below. It is an excellent tutorial by the way. I really enjoyed making this ornament and have thoughts about making more. It's all hand stitched and each time I do any handwork I'm reminded of how much I love it.

Sew, love, live blog

I wandered outside in the cold and the wind and the sleet a couple of days ago to take pictures. These were the best I could get in the wind which made for an uncooperative ornament.

It's hung on my little white spray painted branches on the step landing at the moment. When I have that section of the house prepared for a holiday vignette, I will post all about it!

Two of them are personalized and off to my niece in BC later today. The others on hand ...just in case!
