Yesterday was our anniversary. Yeah Us. I decided to make my hubby a card. He likes that way more than store bought. I also made some Christmas cards for a swap.
Tyler baked a cake last night. It is butter pecan with chocolate icing. Yummy. He has said that he wants to be a chef. He is a teenager and will probably change his mind a million times by the time college roles around. The cake mix was left over from my birthday. Tim was supposed to bake it but couldn’t because the roast was in the oven. The picture is a little blurry. He was being goofy. So this is the only good one I got.
I made these two Christmas ornaments today for a swap partner. I hope she likes them. They had to be handmade. I hand stitched the beads on and hand stitched them close.
The Christmas tree is a dark green felt with glitter on it. It is hard to tell from the picture.
I am in a swap were I have to make two Christmas ornaments made out of felt. I searched the internet looking for ideas. I came up with an angel and gingerbread man. Over all they weren’t too hard. The hardest part was turning them the right way after I sewed them. I had to leave the hole for turning in the gingerbread man larger than I wanted to. So he is stitched up on the left leg. I used wooded beads for the eyes and belly. I thought I would use white rick rack for the trim but I didn’t have any. So the next best thing was to hand stitch the icing. I think he definitely has that handmade look. The angel has some yarn glue to her head for hair and golden wings. I would say the gingerbread man is roughly 4 inches long and the angel is almost 3 inches long.
These will be mailed to my partner who by the way lives in Ireland.
Today was Joshua’s last soccer game for this year. They tied 2-2. It was fun but we froze our buns off. It was 47 degrees at 8am. Burrrr.
