    mailed one of my ornaments off today---would have mailed both but only had part of address so needed to rely on Brenda's help in getting full address. i apologize for my ornaments -i am not as talented in this arena as i might like to be in the artsy-craftsy field.
    So sorry for your loss Brenda---what can one say? There are no words to ease the pain--to dull the ache--to fill the void. One can only go forward and let time scab over the wound left by the death of a loved one. They say it gets better in time--I'm still waiting.

    I do not.. too poor.. hehe want one just to make the thingies I see you all make. But I saw a video that showed someone using a regular machine and some type of stabilizer and just "painting" with basically FMQ inside a design. I think they did a satin stitch on the outline and then just painted around on the inside.. they were using the wash away stabilizer but I always wondered what happens when that washes away, wouldn't the threads fall or something.. so organza would solve that problem.

    Anastasia, I used to applique designs on my kids clothes way back before there were fancy embroidery machines. I used to copy a design from a coloring book, cut out the pieces and zig zag them and then "thread paint" details. You can make cute ornaments this way, just adding felt or fabric for the backing, like I did with the cross-stitch ornaments. You can also stuff them. There are just so many things that can be done with a little imagination. You really don't need a fancy machine.

    OK, mine are in the mail. Wanted to go to the PO yesterday, but it was pouring so bad I figured one more day wouldn't hurt!

    I'm still stitching on mine. I had to take a break for a couple days. My hands are really aching, and I had to wait for the headache to pass. I love cross stitch, but had to quit because it is so hard on my hands. I thought these small projects wouldn't be a problem.

    Those ornaments are ALL great. which one to chose which one to chose.. oh wait! I dont have to they are all COMING TO ME YOU GOT THE WRONG BOXES silly you guys.. here is my address: top of that hill in the middle of nowhere. Look for turkeys and a dork feeding them. Thats it so send away.

    jaba those are perfect. I think they will be so happy to see it all . I love seeing them smile. Its pretty simple gifting a smile.. I appreciate the time you took and the money to send them all for the senior tree. your an angel

    now send those boxes where the belong.. TO ME (or the grinch who stole ornaments may make a visit to your home and that grinch is sure creepy looking)

    I have been looking at all the pretty ornaments. Kiffie, how big did you make the tree yoyo's with the ornies on them? It is so pretty.

    My two partners are getting their ornies in the mail today so they will be flying home and outta here by 5 (slow mountain time flying). I sure wish I would make the time to copy each and everyone of the pretties I see here as I am guessing my ploy to get them all sent to me is not working. Sounds like sticky fingers wont work either your hanging on so darned tight sheesh let GO why dont ya? look! a puppy! (snap). bulging pockets nope no idea where your ornaments went.. that is so strange.

    well you guys have a grand day. I am going to try to get stuff done this morning before I get super tired. lol better go feed the cats.

    I am so so so disappointed I missed out on this! The ornaments are wonderful.
    I love the comment about the "scrappy" tree. I have one of those too.

    Marybeth I sure hope she is.. that is me some mornings all four all over me FEED ME gosh darned they try to kill me trip me up I swear its a cat conspiracy. So I feed them before I hit the coffee switch. not worth dying over lol
    are you home yet?

    and to the poster a bit up with aching hands I am so sorry. Sometimes the finer the things we do the harder it seems to be on the hands. I noticed my hands cramped with hand stitching and crocheting and not with sewing much at all. Take your time whoever has you are their ornament maker will surely understand and heck its onlly the middle of the month you have time I think rest those hands up, keep warm and we will hope they are better soon.

    ok group time for dinner anyone hungry?Name:  we will eat as soon as.jpg
