small ornaments

I am done with most of the small pieces finishes that i posted yesterday. Whew! It does took a lot of time to choose the right colour of fabric for the backing and the cord. So these are actually my first x'mas ornaments that i attempted to finished, all sewed it up by hand. Did a few ornaments last year but with the help of a friend with her sewing.
I can say, they all turned up better than i had expected and now i find it difficult to send them all away. I think not all of them, a few will have to be hang on our x'mas tree. It will have to wait until after the 5th of December before putting up the tree, if it's me alone i'd rather put it up next week.

Thanks Anna for dropping by. Sure, what you've chosen will be on the way to you next week. Can't make it before your leave, especially with the postal strike but hopefully it will be there waiting for you when you get back.

A real success, wonderful. For a first attempt it's a masterpiece, as we say in French. I'm glad to discover your blog owing to Barbara
because I enjoy to feel a bit of the US atmosphere when it's time to prepare Christmas. If you enjoy to discover a little something of how we do it in France, have alook at my site which is written both in FrenchAnd English.
