I designed this little froggy greeting as a Christmas gift for my Facebook fans. Last night I stitched it up on perforated paper and finished it (if adding a floss braid = finishing) as an ornament. I had some of those plastic snowflake buttons lying around, so I cut off their shanks and glued them onto the paper. And hubby doubted I’d be able to finish another handmade ornament this year- ha!
To follow up on Jesus Christ Superstar, it was really very good! Ted Neeley still sounds great; in a few places he spoke rather than sang the lyrics but it was a nice effect. And the garden scene… man, he was beyond words spectacular. Overall a very moving production… if it’s coming anywhere near you, I think you should go see it.
I love this cheap, plastic wreath. It’s very glittery and just makes me smile to see it… I hung it up behind the stove and it sparkles in the glow of the kitchen nightlight. I’m easily impressed.
We finally got the tree decorated and just put the nativity up this morning. We didn’t even put up a third of what we usually do because it got so late, but the simplicity is kind of a nice change.
One of the things that my husband put on his Christmas list was golf tees… how boring is that? My daughter and I took the liberty of sprucing them up a bit; now it’s a much cheerier gift!
I have a few finished stitched gifts, but some things I can’t show you because they haven’t been received yet, and the rest I wrapped without taking pictures. Ugh. I’ll have to post those after Christmas this year. One thing I did manage to snap a pic of is this bookmark:
I like how it turned out; wish I had more of that fabric. sigh. In other news, the basement has sprung a leak that rivals the one in the Dutch boy’s dam… and it keeps on raining! We have to wait until the rain is gone and the wall dries up so we can paint some waterproofing junk on it.
