I think the fact that hubby and I will be alone for Christmas is finally setting in. We know we are just some among many and we count ourselves fortunate to be healthy— as is our family.
If you and yours are not heathy you have my heart. We have two friends in hospital and we are unable to visit.
I finished the last hooked pet ornament! Whew! Who knew I’d be hooking full time in December? Here are a few more pieces:
Fun fun fun.
Our Christmas stuff is in storage but we cut a tiny tree and hung 100 fairy lights from it. I miss my Tasha Tudor Christmas book and video—parts of my traditions. I also miss the box of kids’. Christmas books containing jewels from my hubby and my growing up years as well as our kids’. I saw one of the books at the market yesterday. It’s called The Sweet Smells of Christmas and is a scratch and sniff from Golden books. A bear family welcomes Christmas with holiday scents. Then there is Mr. Willoughby’s Christmas Tree and Tasha Tudor’s Night Before Christmas and on and on....
If you read my last post you’ll know I’ve changed my Christmas expectations. It’s rather a relief. In the past I’ve felt guilty if I don’t experience the feeling of holy wonder at the Lord’s birth. Now I’m embracing that He embraces where I am. Because He came humbly too. And if the religious stuff isn’t in your wheelhouse well I thank you and welcome you and appreciate your reading this.
Have a super week
Your ornaments are adorable !!! Love them !!!! I am just looking forward to getting my Covid shot and being able to be with all my family in 2021 !!!!
Those ornaments are TOO SWEET!
Thanks! So fun to make. I haven’t heard when our vaccine will be available here in eastern Canada. It’ll be interesting to see how the two-part plan plays out.
Thanks Lauren! Merry Christmas to you and yours too
You did a fabulous job on those ornaments!! I hooked some crows way back when I first started hooking...quite simple ones and nothing like your detailed work. I should did them out sometime. "The Sweet Scents of Christmas"!!!! Seriously?! That was my son's very favorite!!! EVERY night we had to read that...even "off season" LOL. We had practically worn out the scratch areas LOL. Fun to hear of someone else who loved the book...if they are the same. ~Robin~
I just pulled out a Tasha Tudor cookbook to look through to see if it was something I would really use as I have had it for some time and I don't think I have used one recipe
Merry Christmas how ever it looks ours will be very different
Your hooked ornaments are amazingly detailed and they look like pictures. What a great job on those.
We will be alone as well for Christmas but I decided that we will celebrate the best we can. We have so much to be thankful for and Jesus is the reason we celebrate this Holiday.
Merry Christmas to you and yours. Stay safe and well.
What fun ornaments you hooked. Yes Christmas will be different for most this year. Janice
I looked it up, The Sweet Smells of Christmas was by Patricia Scarry for Golden books. That is too funny! Such a simple book but much loved!
None of her recipes is low cal, that’s certain, but the meatloaf and the chocolate candies are divine!
You are quite a good hooker and love everyone of your ornaments. Quite a feat with those small pieces.
