I’ve been working a lot without much time for sewing.  Actually I wake up at 4 AM and get some sewing done before I go to work.  I think I am a bit tired…but I managed to do these Christmas ornaments.  They are from a pattern by Indygo Junction.  I haven’t done a lot of it, but I love working with wool.  I have been collecting it for years hoping to do something fun.




Aren’t they just adorable.  I think I will save them for gifts for the holiday season. 




I think this green one is my favorite.  They worked up quickly and it was something I could do when I was really tired and just wanted to sit in front of the TV at night and “veg.”




The embroidery on this one didn’t take much time and it really adds a lot to the ornament!





The little Christmas tree has beads for ornaments and a tiny silver bead to top the tree.  Each ornament has a “jingle bell” attached to the ribbon.



On second thought…I think perhaps that this Mistletoe ornament might be my favorite.  When I was a young girl, I always made sure I had mistletoe around at the holidays for the all the gentlemen who might pass through our doorway!  What do you think?




Perhaps it is hard to choose a favorite.  But I think they will make delightful gifts this year.  Glad I spent those early mornings sewing.

    Your ornaments are all lovely. I can’t imagine getting up at 4am to stitch–I’d just fall right back to sleep over my needle. I am impressed by your determination! Marjorie

    Your ornies are very sweet. I love wool for ornies. Something wholesome and sentimental about it. Yes, I would be happy to share my rum cake recipe. Where shall I send it?

    Love these too! I’m just getting started with wool and hand stitching. Are you using felt or fabric, or fabric that has been felted?
