Staring at my tree...some more...


More ornaments as I sit in a dark room and listen to carols...

I went through a pompom phase about 20 years ago while making ornaments...

I love the ones my daughter made, especially the ones with pictures of her on them...


I made these yoyo trees last year...


I bought these 3 gingerbread guys and gals from Etsy a couple of years ago...I love how twisted they are!




I made this one for my daughter...I have strung tiny letter beads on the back that spells her name...


One of my little egg chicks actually on the tree...


Another Riley original...


One of the first ornaments I made...


Again, pompoms...I even made the little stick xylophone...


Another one Riley made at school...


Back when I used to cross-stitch...

 Snoopy!

Mary Jones' beautiful Redwork...


 Snowman made from wooden beads and a wooden tiny spool...


More of my pompom creations...I made these in 1986!  I loved gluing stuff to plastic candy canes...I called these "William Tell bears" because of the tiny apple on his head.  He is holding a tiny book.


Another blast from my glue-gunning past...


Mary Jones does the nicest stitching/embroidering...


I hope you are enjoying your holidays!

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)

  9. I enjoyed seeing all your tree ornaments, Teresa. What caught my eye, was your cat snuggled in the hoop on that Beautiful Pineapple quilt. I plan to do one of those soon, they always look fabulous.
