    Oh my so many pages to read! Brenda, so sorry to hear about your dad. It is a blessing that you were able to say goodbye. Sending you prayers and hugs, and also to you owlvamp. So sorry to hear about your brother.

    Elisabrat when I had to make ornaments to decorate a tree for a party I collected tons of small boxes and wrapped them in Christmas paper and tied on curly ribbon bows. They actually looked pretty cute. It is a great last minute filler ornament. When do you need ornaments by for the senior's tree?

    OMG Krystyna I love those felt ornies, thanks so much for the link! Anastasia did you see the gnomie Santa, I think I will have to make him. Oh and a HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANASTASIA!

    Darlene if you are in Ohio this coming weekend, http://www.ohioonestopshophop.com/

    I haven't gotten out the Christmas albums yet, but soon! I love them all. My collection is all over the place musically. I have classical, Elvis, a bunch of country singers, the old Firestone christmas albums, and more.

    And . . . I got TWO squishies on Saturday! And totally forgot to check the mail on Saturday. Geez, what can I say I was madly cross stitching. I had forgotten how time consuming that can be, and I hadn't done any since I got trifocals. Ouch!

    Anyway, I received a really cute snowman ( and BONUS FABRIC) from Ladybug 1938. He is so cute, and the fabric she sent is beautiful. Thanks again Rosemary!

    Well, I just got a request to show the gold snowflakes. I have a pic of the first ones, but forgot to take a pic of the gold ones when I got them all finished. So maybe Elisabrat will post a pic when she get them.

    They are done on the embroidery machine. I used organza to stitch on, they hold their shape better than just the stand alone stitching.

    Organza.... another great idea. I think I need to invest in that stuff so I can do some shadow trapunto work and apparently, thread painting pretty things.

    Do you have an embroidery machine? I don't remember ... but if you do, and you do embroidery on it, get a woodburning tool and then you can just melt the threads off the outside!

    I have one of those melty gun things, not really a woodburning kit. I forgot I had it. Thanks for the idea. Does it turn the organza dark though? I will have to get it out and do a test.

    Nope. Use a pointy tip, if you have it, and try not to touch the embroidery. It just burns it away. I have a piece of scrap wood just in case something falls off.

    Yep, mine has 3 or 4 different tips, one has a point. I may have gotten it just for this purpose, but I forgot I even have it. Am going to have to try it out. Thanks again.

    Thank you SO MUCH Linda (LLDugas31) I LOVE the ornaments you sent. What makes them even more special to me is that it brings back memories of my mother doing this type of needle work! They will have a place of honor on my tree!

    My 2 swap packages shipped from the post office this morning. One is going across the country almost and the other one is in staying in the Pacific Northwest area. Dang, this was fun to do once I figured out what I wanted to make. I think coming up with the idea was the hardest part!

    brat

    elisabrat here's what I came up with so tell me if they will work for you. Want you to know when I was "stuffing " these today i thought, "yup, she's killin' 2 birds with 1 stone." You'll be able to make them one for Valentine's Day too if you get enough hearts. You can save these for then if you'd rather have all red or all white, I can do more for you.Name:  DSCF0897.JPG

    I received a package from Darlene in Florida. I am not expecting one so I am thinking it must be my Christmas ornament. I wanted to let you know I received this today but didn't know whether I am suppose to open it yet or not?
