Our soft trees have come out again. Can the big Christmas tree be far behind? Tsia and I are hoping today will be the day. This year I think she'll really enjoy helping to decorate it. Of course that probably also means she won't be able to stop herself from playing with all the ornaments once they're on the tree, but that's ok.
I'm still really want to make an advent calendar. In fact, I still really want to make one using a bunch of my mitten ornaments, but now I've decided I want to hang them from a little tree like this one on the cover of the Garnet Hill catalog. Isn't it great? The little gifts they used are sweet, too, but I still need to do a whole bunch of mittens.
By the way, if you make a mitten ornament (or two), don't forget to add your creation to the Flickr group!
Mom sent me some photos of the mitten ornaments her embroidery group made to sell at their annual show (I gave them permission to use the pattern as a fund raiser) and if I can still locate the photos I'll add them to the group. It's always fun to see how someone else interprets a pattern, I think.
