Finished Ornaments

I hope you had a nice holiday season.  I can't believe it's already the end of the year!  As they say, the days are long and the years are short.

I managed to get all of the cross stitch ornaments done before Christmas, along with Ralphie that I showed last week and one that I finished at the beginning of the year.

Last week I forgot to show what I did for my guild Christmas party, which I ended up missing due to being sick.  One of my guild mates lives near us, so she graciously took my gift and brought one back for me.  I sent these items to the party--Lori Holt tin, hexagon paper pieces, a spool of thread, scissors, fabric tape, a charm pack, and a gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop.
I received this back.  I'm so sad I missed the party, but I have retreat coming up in a few weeks, so I can see my sewing friends soon.
I'm sure by now you've seen the news that Bluprint by Craftsy has dropped a good number of the independent pattern sellers from their platform, due to take effect on December 28. I'm pretty disappointed by that decision, especially since they only gave designers just over a week to make new arrangements.  In the meantime, I've downloaded all my purchased patterns just in case they are no longer available.

Until next year, happy sewing.
