I stitched 9 of the 12 ornaments that were featured on the 2012 Aurifil Designer Blog Hop.  For me, that’s a pretty good track record. If I actually stitched all 12, you would have known that I was the victim of a body snatcher…

As I mentioned in another post, I had an idea for finishing the ornaments that were different from what the designers had in mind. If I actually followed the original pattern, that would have been another sure-fire way to know that a body snatcher was on the prowl.

Most of my weirdo ideas never amount to anything, because my brain is much better at making things than my hands.

So far so good:


The hexagons are big. To give you a better idea as to the size:


Now I’m off to find the sheets of red felt that I am pretty sure is around here somewhere. If not, a little shopping trip to the LQS is in order. I may find something I didn’t even know I wanted needed. That would be a first, wouldn’t it?

The polka dot fabric in the first pic is part of a Top Secret project I’m working on. Okay, not Top Secret – I just always wanted to say that. More a case of ‘can only show you in the new year’.

Thanks to everyone that has commented on my previous post thus far. I’m glad to see that all of you touched on things that I had in mind, and also on some things that I wouldn’t have thought of, but would later on have wished that I did.

I’m linking this post to the Small Blog Meet over at Lily’s Quilts.


Till next time,

Miss Thimble
