Twenty Two!!!!

And no, I'm NOT referring to my age!!  Instead, I'm talking about completing twenty-two Christmas ornaments that are headed for my gift box.  See?.....

- If there's a little one in your life and you'd like to make them something fun, have a look at all the free patterns HERE.  I have my eye on the yo-yo dog!  (there are four pages to look at!!).  Updated to add - yo-yo dog is underway!

- I may have given you THIS link before, but even if I have it's cute enough to see a second time!

- There are a number of free cross stitch patterns available HERE.

- HERE is where you can find good tips to keep your self-healing mat in tip-top shape.

- Oh my goodness - I WANT one of THESE!!!!!!

- HERE's a nice tote bag pattern and there's another one HERE.  

I haven't given you one of Ralph Waldo Emerson's great quotes for awhile...."The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be"


  1. They are lovely. Thank you for the links

  2. Your ornaments are darling! And I LOVE your quote. So true. :) The tip on cleaning the cutting mat is perfect. Thank you!

  3. Twenty two! They are very pretty, Mary Anne. That Christmas gift box of yours is brimming over, isn't it. Being an Aussie gal, the sock kangaroo softie warms the cockles of my heart. I think I will have to make this one.

  4. Your heart Christmas ornaments are sweet! And you're getting a head start on gifts, good thinking,
    Mary Ann.

  6. Are you sure your middle name is not Mrs Santa? Your treasure gifts are really mounting. Where do you find the time? The hearts are lovely.

  7. My goodness you get so much work done, beautiful ornaments! I'm not ready to be thinking about Christmas just yet, but it's our turn to have the whole extended family over this Christmas, so I better start preparing, lol :) xx

  8. Twenty two - way to go!

  9. Lots of great links again today. I love these hearts. Easy to make and fun to give.
