I Forgot To Show You!


Hello, Dear Ones!
First of all I wanted you to see my new header and I've done a few other little things on my blog.
I got all of my inspiration and tutes from our Brenda at Cozy Little House. She has another blog with blogging tutes and you'll find all kinds of things for your blog. Pop on over to Brenda's Blog Tips.

Okay, I've been so busy I realized I forgot to show you the little Christmas felties I made for Carter!
This is a photo heavy post so grab a cookie and a cup of Wassail and just sit back and relax.
 Most of your know I've been making little felt ornaments for my little granddaughter, Carter.
I've made for all seasons and only Christmas was left so I went to town felting! I poked them all on my little feather tree to show you before I pack them up for her.
I took them to her when we went to have an early Christmas. 
 So do you like them? I had so much fun making these little cuties and all my thanks to the clever ones who have pinned on Pinterest. I am totally a copy cat. 
Hope that's legal! :)
 Course I'm gonna break it down so you can see the ornies up close and personal.
I had to make Joseph, Mary and baby Jesus for the top of the tree.
This is my granddog, Findley. He's a chocolate lab but I knew if I made him in brown his little eyes and nose would not show up. So I improvised.
 Have to have reindeer at Christmas and I made two brown ones and...
 ...one blonde! :) I sewed on little beads for their noses.
Oops! I see a stray white piece of embroidery floss!
Just keepin' it real, folks. :)
 I made three little Frostys and added a little bitty jingle bell to his scarf. More beads for the noses.
 Three Santies ~ added a jingle bell to his hat and he got a jolly red bead for his nose.
 Three stars of Wonder!
 Three little Christmas trees with beads and garland of course.
My stitches are certainly not perfect but that's okay.
All ornies are stuffed with a little polyester stuffing except the trees.
There you have it. My cute little ornies for Carter. 
As you can see, she loved them and hope you do too!
I put a heart over her opened PJs. She was giving herself a checkup and was all opened up! ;)
Gotta love that silly little girl.

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~


Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree

Rocking around the Christmas Tree
at the Christmas party hop
Mistletoe hung where you can see
Ev'ry couple tries to stop

You will get a sentimental feeling When you hear voices singing
"Let's be jolly; Deck the halls with boughs of holly" Rocking around the Christmas Tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone's dancing merrily
In a new old fashioned way

Rocking around the Christmas Tree
Let the Christmas Spirit ring
Later we'll have some pumpkin pie
and we'll do some caroling

You will get a sentimental feeling When you hear voices singing
"Let's be jolly; Deck the halls with boughs of holly" Rocking around the Christmas Tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone's dancing merrily
In a new old fashioned way 
~ sung by Brenda Lee
