Christmas ornaments

I finally managed to get the kids ornaments finished off

For Oliver

For Bonnie


For Arthur

I also finished this Heart In Hand 2018 Santa


This was going to be for Oliver but it turned out too big to hang on his tree so he chose the snowman one instead.  I have to confess that i'm happy to have this Santa staying with me because I absolutely love him!!  I already had the frame and he fit it perfectly, so I laced him onto some foam board and luckily the back still fit on the frame too.

Below is a five minute craft from last week

The picture is from the box my Christmas cards came in and I already had the box frame and coloured bells.  I just thought the picture was too lovely to throw away and It makes a nice decoration.

I've managed to get quite a bit done this week not being a work, including almost all of the present wrapping.  I've run out of paper for Olivers so will have to get some more tomorrow and get those done.  I have a hair appointment tomorrow afternoon then a good tidy up of my little crafty space is on the to do list.

See you soon

Love your sewing, and your clever use of a Christmas card and bells.

The ornaments are lovely and something the children will be able to use year after year. What a great idea framing up that little picture and adding the bells, you're right, it does make a nice decoration. I've wrapped everything I've bought so far, just a couple more things to get and then I'm done.

Those are such wonderful ornaments for your grandchildren, Maggie--all perfectly stitched and finished! I hope to do the same if I am EVER lucky enough to become a grandmother :) Your Santa looks great and I love the idea of the shadowbox for your card and the little jingle bells. Will have to remember that one!

Merry Christmas, Maggie!

Love your ornament finishes, especially the snowman one. The Christmas card with the jingle bells is cute, too.

How clever of you to frame the print from the box, and the addition of the colorful bells was genius. Love seeing your pretty stitches.

All your stitching is so cute. Glad Santa gets to stay with you. What a cute little shadow box type craft. How creative you are. You're ahead of me with wrapping, thought I would do it today; but really don't have much to do. Merry Christmas.

Great idea with the 5 minute frame, the pic is way too gorgeous not to be used, the sparkly bells look great.
Sweet ornaments for the little ones.
Love and blessings, enjoy the festive season and advanced Happy Birthday wishes xx
