Today I'm showing you another of the ornaments in the series. It's really difficult to get decent photos of something that's round! If you go HERE you can see much better photos of what I was aiming towards.
And...yesterday Resident Chef made these....why buy chocolates when his are so much better?
- There are a number of really great knitting hacks to be found HERE.
- THIS is a really (!) simple project but I know my hands are happier when I use them.
- If you're searching for a quick and easy project perhaps making THESE might work!
- Sometimes the easiest projects are the cutest as THIS will attest!
AND - JUST A REMINDER - THERE'S ONLY THREE DAYS UNTIL MY CHRISTMAS LANDSCAPE SALE COMES TO AN END! GO HERE TO SEE WHAT'S AVAILABLE!
Today's quote..."The nice part about living in a small town is that when you don't know what you're doing, someone else does"
Your house ornaments may be my favorites yet, but then I seem to have a thing for little houses of all kinds. I would love one of those chocolates right now. :~)ReplyDelete
I've always had a thing for little houses too (miniatures of all kinds, actually). And wish I could virtually send you a chocolate!Delete
These house ornaments are gorgeous They will be family treasures. Oh my, how nice to have a man who can make things in the kitchen. Tony, while good at many things, can pour himself a bowl of cereal...that's the outer limit of his kitchen skills. LOLReplyDelete
Luckily my DH loves to cook - and he passed that love on to our boys (to the extent that our oldest is a chef).Delete
About those chocolates.. Are they filled? I guess you don't ship. They'd be eaten at the border anyway.ReplyDelete
Yes, they're filled. And I think you're right - they wouldn't make it past the border (if they even got that far).Delete
I love these little house ornaments Mary Anne, they are really cute. Those chocolates look scrumptious, they wouldn't last very long in my house! Hugs Christine xxReplyDelete
Thank you Christine - I'm pleased with them. As for the chocolates, they're in the freezer. We allow ourselves one per week because otherwise they'd cease to be a real treat.Delete
Beautiful house ornament--lots of tiny little goodies on this!! Lovely stitching...hugs, JulieroseReplyDelete
Thank you! They were fun to make but time-consuming.Delete
I can just imagine how long those house ornaments take to fashion.ReplyDelete
The chocolates look amazing. Resident Chef did an awesome job on them.
The ornaments did take awhile for sure, but they were fun to do. I was dreading putting them together but once I managed to resize the roof pattern to suit the gauge of canvas I used they went together pretty easily.Delete
Another fun finish, it looks great! You've certainly gotten the hang of putting them together beautifully.ReplyDelete
Chocolate, yum! What kind did he make? It looks like it could be buckeyes?
I was dreading putting those ornaments together but in the end it wasn't as difficult as I expected.Delete
The chocolates aren't buckeyes, but similar. He's cobbled together his own recipe (as usual!)
I love your round stitches! I wish they would never end. :) I've not been able to keep up with you this month, but I'm going to go back and see all your beautiful finishes. And yum. Those chocolate candies look amazing.ReplyDelete
They were fun ornaments to do although quite time consuming. I liked them because they're a little different than the normal ornaments and I also love miniatures.Delete
