Ornament for a friend......



This ornament was received on Christmas Eve by Loralee so I can now post it. It is one of the Old World Santa's by The Prairie Schooler stitched on a piece of scrap fabric and finished as a pin keep ornament. The backing fabric is my favorite Christmas holly. I met Loralee on Etsy this past year (I am a big fan of the site and I am sure it has caused my debit card to just about self implode!) Anyway, she has a shop there called The Beaded Path where she sells hand made earrings, necklaces and zipper/necklace charms. I am particularly fond of her zipper charms and use them on all of my project bags. She has been generous enough to gift me with a few along with the ones I have bought. In the course of all of that we have connected, become friends and now keep in touch via facebook. She has been a sweet and generous friend and I hope that it will continue for many years to come!

You should stop by and visit her sometimes-you can look through her previous sales history and see earlier creations and she is open to custom requests too! Loralee, I am glad that you really like this ornament~I know Santa is in a good place;) This ornament will probably be my last finish for 2009~but I am looking forward to new stitching challenges next year. More about that later! I want to really wish you all a very Merry Christmas! May all your Christmas dreams, desires or needs come true!
