Christmas exchange Part 3



Mum and I decided to do an ornie exchange between each other as mum doesn't have a computer so no blog, she thought that the ornie exchanges sounded wonderful. So as we are doing the NRR together mum has stitched me a house ornie, its really lovely and I love the bead trim around the edges, I also got lots of lovely little goodies with the parcel too.



This is the one that I sent mum its by Cherished stitches from the 2005 JCS Ornie book. I stitched it on 32ct gold linen using my own colour choices of threads and I finished the edges with some pretty velveteen fabric I had in my stash and with pins.

"Oh what fun it is to exchange holiday ornies with your Mum!"
It sounds pretty good if you sing it to the tune of Jingle Bells! LOL!
Both are beautiful as usual Su! I can see where you get your immense talent in sewing!

What beautiful ornaments :) So pretty. I really like them both, but especially the Cherished Stitches one -it's a bit unusual :)

Love the sparkly background on your blog too!

The Cherished Stitches ornie you did is postively eye-popping, Su!

And the idea of an ornie exchange with your mom makes me want to cry, it's such a sweet thing to do.
