SSCS 2011...The Ornament...Outgoing...

Yay! The mail person worked on a Saturday and delivered the ornament parcel to Nancy..so now, in line with the rules, as Nancy was able to open that parcel I can reveal what I made for her...

Back story (of course!)...I started out with the plan to make a small hanging cushion using one of the 'Tis the Season stitcheries, like the one I made here, but somehow it morphed...

And became...
A Stocking (...ish)...

...my version of the hanging pocket project from the 'Tis the Season book by Natalie Bird...

Um, small hanging ornament...um, no, not really...oh well, I decided that in the US of A they tend to upsize (well if TV shows and advertising are anything to go by and we all know that is representative of reality don't we - ha ha ha)...and hanging could be from anywhere couldn't it, not only the Christmas Tree (unless Nancy has a Really Big Tree)...mantlepiece...doorknob...really tall relative with an outstretched arm...a multitude of possibilities...next year Jindi's Human...small! remember the word key word is small!! *LOL*...

I popped in some small presents that Nancy isn't allowed to open until Christmas Day...apparently I am a temptress...he he he (insert evil laugh)...


So glad you like it Nancy...


Happy Stitching...

I love your upsized decoration. Sweet stitchery and lovely fabric to make the ornament.
What a devil you are to include prezzies that can only be looked at until Christmas!
