Blogmas 2022: 11/28/22

We had to take a road trip to the nearest city of any size today, so I took along a small Christmas stitching project to work on while riding.

I started it yesterday and got it all done except for the hand work and that's what I worked on as hubby drove and I rode.

Aren't these just the cutest ornaments or they could be gift tags.
I got the pattern and instructions HERE!

I love all things quilting so when I came across these, I knew I had to make some.  They were quick, easy and used up some of the smaller pieces of Christmas fabric in my stash.

As we rode down the road, me stitching and hubby driving, we had the radio on listening to and singing along with Christmas music!  

It was a peaceful and enjoyable ride; I got this little stitching project finished and we enjoyed the silliness of our little sing-along! 

Tonight, we're settled in with our beverages (hubby - a cola and me my nightly garlic/ginger/honey drink), kicked back in our recliners watching the first episode of The Great Christmas Light Fight of 2022!

Until tomorrow!

  1. I have some exactly like those that my great aunt made probably twenty in years ago!

    1. Lana, that's amazing, you have some family heirlooms!

    2. She made us beautiful ornaments every year for about 25 years. We remember her fondly every year when we decorate the tree.

    3. Lana, what a special thing to do for someone and what a special way of remembering a person.

  2. The link isn't working to connect to the instruction for the cute hand-made Christmas trees. Help!

    1. GrammaGrits, I fixed it. Thanks for letting me know!
