The ornament below has great sentimental value for me. I can remember sitting on the floor, taking time to create this while a toddler and baby played around me. If I was doing this now, I would not make it pink, but probably shades of green. However, the pattern called for pink and I had pink, so I went with it.
The hanging loop had come out of this one. I had to just create another loop at the end, because the thread that forms the hanging loop is what holds the ornament together. As this ornament hangs on the tree, air currents will move the bell clapper and the bell itself. Even though I'm no longer crazy about the color, I love this ornament and want to commemorate the time and trouble I took to make it.
The last one is very hard to see. I took two photos but couldn't get a good one. It's a rural mailbox (my favorite!) with a cardinal atop and fields, farm and houses in the background.
It feels great having this little project taken care of. In reality, it was just a few minutes with a glue gun and a few other simple supplies, but it was so encouraging to me!
