A favorite of the partridges. I adore the more subdued wing on this guy, and the way newphews name stitched up. This is the last of the 2017 @satsumastreet partridges. I have 10 of the @tinymodernist to go, the I still have the 2018 ornaments- at least one new little one will be welcomed with a partridge this year, and we have 14 turtle doves to go! #sarahmaestitches2018#handmadechristmas#satsumastreet#12daysofchristmasornaments
Finished the first set in the series. I'm loving these colors of felt; harvest palette from @benziedesign. Trying to decide if I want to put together another set of these #1s with another color of felt or start on #2 using the same felt palette. Hopefully I will be able to make a full set out of several felt palettes that I have in mind. The second set was even easier than the first set to put together. I used some beads instead of French knots this time; I really like the extra added interest the beads add. I also used a little bit of satin floss. Maybe I need some sequins next!!! Can't show the back of the partridge as I embroidered a name and year on them as these are a gift set. #mmmcrafts#handstitched#12daysofchristmasornaments#partridgeandpear#benziedesign#felt#embroidery#embroideryart#dmc#harvestpalette
He sent his only son as a baby so we would know light from dark. Jesus is the light of the World. Jesus is how God gave us Christmas. - from the book God Gave Us Christmas . . . . Instead of an ornament picture for my #12daysofchristmasornaments I decided to share a sweet family moment reading before bedtime. It is so important to us we teach our sweet girl the true meaning of Christmas and why we celebrate it. At church last night I was reminded how wrapped up we get in all the hustle and bustle and things to do during this season, that sometimes we forget to sit back and really reflect on the real reason we have Christmas. I love all things Christmas so I definitely get wrapped up in a lot of the other things and needed this reminder. Jesus is the light of the world, he is the Reason for this Season. Make sure to take the time to reflect on that these next few days, I know I will be.
#12daysofchristmasornaments Day 9 because I forgot to post yesterday. . . . . . Silver Bells, Silver Bells...... Ornaments that tell a story are super special, so I love having so many that do. These ornaments tell a story of of every Christmas until my first one married. My Grandma and Papaw gifted us these Silver Bells every Christmas. We lost my Papaw 15 years ago right before Christmas and these bells started to really have so much more meaning to me. Through all the years I maybe didn’t appreciate them, I realized how special they truly were. Grandma still gifts them now to her great grandchildren. They are the perfect tradition and reminder of Family, and Christmas past and present. My Silver Bells have become one of my favorite Christmas memories even though as a child I wasn’t good at appreciating them the way I do today. I hope these bells will be just as special to my girl one day as they are to me.
