Ornament Arrives

I had an email from Bonnie to say her ornament arrived so here it is in full. I decided to finish it off with beads.  This was my first go at doing this and am really pleased with how it turned out.  I didn't have enough fabric left for the back so I joined 2 pieced together using the same method for the sides with the beads and wrote both our names on the back and the year.  I loved stitching him.
Not the best shot - didn't notice the shade on it till later
  
side on


back.
I have nearly finished stitching the Fallen Down Santa which makes up the 6 santa's in this series so watch out for made up ornaments in the next couple of weeks.

I feel a little like a train wreck today.  I helped out with a Bible study this morning and this young woman is in such a mess and it was a really emotional time for me.  I feel drained but I know that God loves her.  We are having another one next week and I know that God will help her in her search for truth.

Till next time God Bless and keep those needles threaded and stitches crossed.

Hey, I love that photo at the top of your blog. Wish I were there walking with you. (smile)

Your Santa ornie is delightful. I'm sure she loves it.

It's very sweet of you to help out in your Bible study. I'm sure this lady will be blessed by your presence.

What a beautiful ornament. I love the beads around the edge, it's turning into my favourite way to finish an ornie!

I hope you the young woman you helped are feeling a little better today.

Wonderful that you were able to help the young gal at Bible Study. God puts us in the right places at the right time, doesn't He??

Oooh what a lovely ornie you made!! Great job. I'm planning to make ornies as well, but I have no idea how to do the finishing :)

Carol said...

Great job on your first beaded edge, Annette! I've only done one, too, but it was fun and I hope to try it again, soon... The ornament is so cute, but I have to laugh seeing it with that background of greenery! I haven't seen anything but white outside in so long...

Hope your next session with the young woman is helpful for her.
