On My Desk…


On my desk today…some holiday cheer. Oh, and my desk is also my sofa, because that’s where I’ve got my silly leg propped up.

I’ve got these almost finished upish. I’m trying to make enough ornaments to send to family & friends this year. These are so basic it’s a hair embarrassing, but here’s my ancient Chinese secret : just trace the inside of a star-shaped cookie or sandwich cutter, round the edges if you like. Me, I like. Give them a sophisticated (ahem) 2-dimensional look by whip stitching two stars together with some polyfill in the middle.

I know. Just call me Ms. Stewart.

  1. Those are the cutest little things! VERY crafty (in both senses of the word–that double whip-stitching trick-whoo!). Those will look just great on the tree, I’m sure!

    Hope you’re keeping that leg elevated and rested 🙂

  2. those are just lovely, Shelly! i love how simple & super cute they are. hoooooray! i think they’ll make fabulous decorations to beautify christmas trees, indeed!

  3. I like those, they have a nice personal touch. My family Christmas tree is always filled with tons of handmade ornaments. We always have to talk about the history of each ornament as we decorate.
