Our annual Friday Sit & Stitch potluck and ornament exchange is in a few hours and I wanted to share the two ornaments that I made to share. The first one is made from yo yo's, slightly puffed with some scrap squares of batting then "threaded" on some fine gold wire and tied with a bow.
The second one is a crazy pieced, scrappy, stuffed heart with some beaded embellishment and a dangling key (all hearts have a lock and key, some harder to "pick" than others!).
We anonymously wrap each ornament in tissue then stuff it in an unadorned brown lunch sack, secured with a staple. Then they are heaped on a table and we draw numbers to determine a choosing order. It is so much fun to see what this very clever group comes up with every year.
I will post what I come home with (and maybe a few others!) next post.
