WIP Wednesday - 1st Whimsical Birdie Ornie Complete

Hi everyone!! Well it is Wednesday and we received over a foot and half of snow since Monday! I'm loving the white landscape!

I started working on the cute felt ornaments that I wrote about in this post. They are pretty easy and probably a breeze for you that do needle point. I am a beginner and had to look up what a blanket stitch was. I found a great video tutorial here.

Not the best stitching I have seen, but it will be adorable adorned to the stocking I am planning on making. I have two more to finish and then work up some little felt ornies that I have been spying at on Pinterest!

I haven't really worked on much these past few weeks. I need to concentrate on Christmas decorations right now so I will have something up before the big day!

Everyone have a great week! Take a moment and hop over to Tami's Amis Blogspot.

Felt Ornament Kits - Christmas Time Decorating

Hello everyone! Well, December is upon us and it is time to begin the festive decorating of the home. I do love this time of year! Not only are we celebrating Christmas, but the ski slopes are open and winter skiing is in full affect!

I have gathered many crafty items to begin my month of Christmas crafting. I have a few garland wreaths that need to be decorated and hung along with complimentary garland. It is time to begin stringing up the lights and decorating the Christmas tree. I also purchased some burlap to make my Christmas stockings. I came across some really cute felt ornament kits.

I saw these cute little whimsical bird ornaments and just had to grab them. Granted I am not the best hand seamstress and embroidery seems to elude my abilities, I just cannot wait to make these darling little birdies!! The kit comes with everything you need including a needle! I think they will be very cute adorned to the burlap stockings I am planning on making. What cute winter projects are you making? I would love to hear about them.
