Christmas Ornaments & Cupcake Pincushion

I thought I would share some ornaments that I have received. I was in a cupcake ornament swap and received this cutie.

We received a package from Tim’s parents. His mom made two adorable ornaments. We love them.

I made this cupcake pincushion. I am going to make a few more and give them away as Christmas presents.

It measures 3 inches high and 2 inches wide. I found a place to buy the little ceramic dishes for 95 cent a pack. 2 come in a pack. You can’t get much better than that.

Last night we went to Tim’s bosses house for a Christmas party. It was fun. Her house is huge. It is right on the river. It was very foggy last night. We went out on the dock and it was kind of spooky. The fog was very thick.

Angel & Gingerbread Man Felt Christmas Ornaments

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.
