Old-fashioned Christmas craftiness
One of my fondest memories (and a memory that is common to many of us, I think), is making felt ornaments with my mother and sister. They were classic – snowmen and bells. I can still remember sewing the sequins on with seed beads and whip stitching the edges. Last night, as my mother, my sister and my daughter decorated my mom’s tree, we unpacked and hung those very ornaments, reminiscing the whole time. I’ve always wanted to make my own patterns for classic ornaments like that, so this year I created a set of ornaments featuring Santa, Rudolph and all of the reindeer. Each reindeer is different, and for me, part of the fun is how each one has their own little personality. I have these hanging on my tree now, and I have to say, it is so much fun to look up and see them amidst the lights, the greenery and the shiny ornaments!
