Smalls SAL: Tiny Ornaments for Lovely Girls

This month, I decided to stitch ornaments for the girls. I chose an old Sisters and Best Friends chart, not for any sentimental reason, but rather I had a plan. Someday when I am not decorating for Christmas any longer* I thought it would be nice for the twins to inherit my ornament collections. One is snowman ornaments and the other is santa ornaments. So I've decided to stitch them ornaments to start their collections. I chose these because I knew I could get them done!

Unfortunately, I attended a conference last week (more on that in my belated Alphabet Club post) and I took off with too little spring grass (snowman ornament) and no soot (both ornaments) so I stitched what I could. (And then it turned out that I had forgotten the black for the other stitching project I brought and it was all a huge cluster!) (And we ended up having to stay an extra day because of all the damn rain on Friday.)


*When I'm too old, not like last year when I just didn't get around to decorating...

The ornaments are cute. I think the girls will enjoy their ornaments from their aunt down the road. Sorry you got stuck an extra day!

Those two are adorable. The frustration of having all that time to stitch, but lacking the proper tools.....argh! :(

These are cute, the girls will love the start to their collection.

I can't imagine the frustration of not having the right supplies. Maybe that's why I always take enough projects to keep me busy for a whole week! And that's for one day out LOL
