What's in the box (five)

I've got an urge to finish some of the unfinished things hanging around my craftsroom. The logcabin quilt, the knitted blanket in progress, the embroidery works, the applique quilt......I can go on and on! And not to forget..the secret santa christmas swap project!! I think it's best to finish of my SSCS project first so I can send it of to my parner on time! Sorry, but I can't reveal that much of it here because its secret!! So instead I will open a box for you.


In this box I keep selfmade crafted ornaments for in the christmas tree.

I personal like the little angel and the embroidery heart with all the buttons on.

Oh what beautiful ornaments - is there no end to the lovely things you have made? I like the heart with the buttons best, too. (In fact, I might try to make one myself, if you don't mind).

Meredith said...

It looks like a cat to me. I really like the way you displayed the ornaments. It looks like a photo from a magazine. I like teh angel also. It is noce you have ornaments that you made yourself.

Rose Marie said...

Love it when you open a box as you always have wonderful goodies to show us. Those are beautiful ornaments and that rabbit/cat is sweet! :o)

I love your cat!
Your other decorations are wonderful too. I remember one christmas I made lots of decorations as we had very little money. it was so much fun to do and so rewarding.
goodluck with finishing your WIPs!

I love the hearts! Especially the one outlined with little white buttons. I have so many little hearts of many mediums... so I hot glued them on a grapevine wreath.
Hugs to my favorite pursemaker.

Lucky you!

I love your ornaments, and you did a beautiful job of making them! Well, I knew it was a cat right away, but I am a cat lover. Besides that, a rabbit does not have a long tail!

Euphoria said...

these are SO cute! I love the stocking one and the heart with all the buttons on it! Super cute!

Care said...

Love your handmade ornaments! Maybe I can buckle down and make some this year.

Hi Corry, all those SSCS lurkers!! I love all the Christmas ornaments you made! I love your cat very much, he has such a cute belly button!

de vliegende koe said...

P.S. My cat has big ears too, that’s why we called him Midas! Sadly enough he doesn’t turn everything into cold, but he’s making my days much more joyable!

Barbara said...

what fabulous decoration! Christmas can come!

gwen said...

Wild cats have longer ears, so yours is just very wild! The Christmas decorations are all so cute. Makes me feel like starting sewing new ones straight away!
The bag your sister sent you is gorgeous! Take care.

Felicia said...

Wow! Secret Santa is talented and generous :)

Mary said...

What fab decorations. You are such a talented sewer.

macati said...

I love the 4th hanging: the heart is so cute!

I love your little box of tree ornaments. And I think the cat is adorable. My mom used to have a large version of that kitty. Do you have a pattern for it or did you make it up?
