Ornaments

I like making these wool mitten ornaments every year for simple gifts, just small enough to slip into a card.  Simple wool applique with a wool strip for hanging.  After seeing dry grass for a week, a nice layering of snow in the background after a winter storm passed thru last night.
I've been making these little wool wreaths since Libby of Simplylibby sent me one years ago.  String your wool scraps that have been cute into little squares until you have a circle, tie it off, and some bells and a wool bow.

  2. I think the simpler things are the most wonderful things.
    I tend to over think things.

    Each year I admire your mittens,such a lovely idea, the wreath is a great too and it uses up small scraps.

  8. A perfect background for the little wool ornaments. You would see flowers in my picture if I took it outside. LOL! A white Christmas would be nice but I would have to come to your home for that.
