Little Christmas Stocking freebie pattern & more!

Today is a good day to give you a sweet freebie design!!!
These lil stocking ornaments are easy to whip up using felt or wool.
Fill them with a small candy cane, treats or a little cash.
Copy and save pattern...print out.
Just cut two stocking shapes from wool...for a front and back.
Cut out a stocking top brim, the toe and heel from white felt.
Whip stitch them onto the front of the stocking. 
Cut out petals for poinsettia from wool and some leaves too.
Stitch/tack them to the stocking (just the petal parts near the center).  Add flower center....using gold DMC floss.... stitch lots of French knots.
Whip stitch the front and the back of the stocking together.
Add a string hanger and you are done!
*Please note that all freebies are for you to use to make finished goods (no mass producing) and gifts...they are still legally my designs. 
---------------------------------------------
New Banners for Christmas!!
 You can print them off and use them over and over. You can use them in projects for shows, home decor, parties, and more! 
I painted the Snowman and cabin scene...converted them to the flag shapes and also made extra snow dots and motifs as an illustration ...so that all the colors go together perfectly.
All you do is print, cut out...(add glitter if you want) and glue them onto a string or baker's twine.
The banner can be any length. Each sheet has 12 flags....you could print as many as you need. Each little flag measures: 3 3/4" x 1 9/16". 
Using the coupon code today....it would be only $2.40!

Tinting ornaments

I want to show you how super easy it is to tint Selina's Wooden Christmas ornament blanks.
She cuts them from wood...but I thought these would look great in a color that would still show the wood grain. They come with a center of wood, which I put aside (they don't need a color, they will not be seen anyway)
Grab you watercolors...and water and a brush.
Dab on the get your paint wet with water and blob on!
It only takes seconds to cover one.
Same goes for this ornament.... blue watercolor this time.
After I covered it ...I went back and gave an extra blob of paint on the dots and snowflakes.
They dry real quick.
If you want you could spray with a matte clear finish.....but I personally didn't do that.
These ornaments are easy to add photos to too.
I just took some off the computer...printed them off and cut them out and taped them to the back with strapping tape.

This is my daughter and her boyfriend.
The top center mitten is the untinted wood and the others are tinted.
I love them both ways.
Let me remind you that she has her

I love when it is all up and sparkling....the getting it out takes courage...lol.
My daughter Selina has made some new designs....ornament embroidery blanks!
Above is the finished ornaments!
So darned cute!
They come like this...3 different ornaments in one pack.
You can leave them the natural wood or tint them. (The next blog post will be about tinting!)
Each one is individually crafted and so easy to add your design or embroidery to. 
Ornaments are:
Round measures: 2 3/4” x 3”
Curvy measure:3 3/4” x 2 1/8”
Long measures:3 7/8” x 2”
They come with embroidery designs and a small alphabet to personalize your own.
They are even cute just placing photo on them.
The top picture has Selina and her boyfriend Jaryd.
The left kitty is Froy and the right kitty is Princess Fiona.
They are even just adorable when you add just fabric....like this grinch design. 
I added a little glitter for fun.
They come with Holly berry and joy designs....plus an alphabet pattern too.
Wouldn't these be cute with every member having their own mitten with their name on it!
The ornament packs also come with hooks.

Happy Thanksgiving Decor!

Thanksgiving day is here!
For some reason this year...I am really excited about it.
I love the dinner and family...I love the smells...and the laughter.
I love the nostalgia of it.
My sister has to work however...at 4 pm on thanksgiving...which I think should be against the law!
No one needs to shop at 4 pm on thanksgiving....can't we all enjoy the day??
I wanted to share some of my Thanksgiving decor with you!
The middle item...the black cat is a new purchase this year...from Stephanie( Primitive Daisy)
I love SNOOPY!!!!
I have had that lil card for atleast 20 years...it just makes me happy.
Remember crafting with tin cans and terra cotta pots...do you spot them in this pic? 
I made this small picture book along time ago...it is full of Thanksgiving days past! 
The turkey Selina made when she was just a wee one!
It is a treasure! 
I love Dennison books for the holidays. 
Yes...I like corny and hokey stuff!! 
Sue gave me this adorable pilgrim boat and people....I love it! 
Turkey are so much fun to collect...I keep my eye out at thrift stores all year long. 
I added a few fabric feathers to my bust. 
I also decorated my white deer....he is so fashionable. 
I put my new banner on this quilt...love the glitter fall letters too. 
My piano... always a favorite area to decorate. 
I put my "Pilgrim power" tag on this copper vase. 
Small goodies in a tin container...Selina when she was a baby at the pumpkin patch. 
My tags come in handy to add to plain decor. 
She is a sweety!
I hope you all have a wonderful day!!
