pears. This time out of (a very old) velveteen skirt which I think belonged to my husbands' great Aunt Alice. It was a really small skirt, and didn't fit anyone, so I thought I would get some use out of the fabric. These pears are ornament sized, about 2 1/2 inches high, and I sprinkled on some glitter and added a thread for hanging. I made one white one from my wool stash.
The cross stitch bird was something I had laying around unfinished for years. I sewed a piece of velveteen to the back and stuffed it, so now the Partridge can join the pears on a tree!
I also put together two Christmas Tree Hot Pads from a free pattern available at Pink Chalk Fabrics. They just need some quilting, then I can start using them. The crochet bits are part of a scarf that I will show you after Christmas. Right now I need to turn my sewing room into a gift wrapping room, so I will be checking out until after the holidays.
Have a wonderful, peaceful Christmas!
