Just in the nick of time …!!

Yup, ’tis Christmas Eve and I FINALLY got my very first stitched ornaments completely finished … ie they are now actual ornaments! Yippee!! I’m pretty pleased with them, to say they’re my first ones ๐Ÿ™‚ I was a bit hesitant with the cardboard cutting etc, and I have to admit to using glue, which is also a first for me!

One ornament is for me (the Christmas tree one on the left) – and one for my best Aussie mate’s Mum as a bit of a wind-up for his Dad … his Dad isn’t keen on Christmas, but his Mum adores it – every year when he starts moaning, I just say “oh, bah humbug” to him … it’s become a bit of a joke between us. Last year he was going to buy me a jar of humbugs for my Christmas present … well, this year he might want to hit me instead, but I just couldn’t resist this ornament when I first saw it! So, the “No Humbugs Allowed” goes to Carol and Len … may you still allow me back in the house in 2006! LOL.

  5. Anne, I can’t believe how beautifully these ornaments turned out (so very neat – perfect), and with my sense of humor, I would love your FIL, so your humbug ornament is my favorite. It’s just adorable. Thanks for sharing your finishing talents. Your upbeat personality shines through every post.
