Gnome Ornament

I'm alive!  We've been so busy and I've been trying to get lots done around the house to get ready for Christmas but I have been doing some projects.

The first was decorating our tree :)  I LOVE going to pick out our tree, cutting it down and bringing it home and decorating!

Then I joined my first swap!!  I signed up for the Sew a Holiday Ornament Swap over at Lindsay Sews and had a great time making this ornament for my partner.  She mentioned really liking Gnomes so I was on the hunt to find a Gnome ornament to make.  I tried a freehanded version and it was terrible!! So I found a great pattern on Etsy, and went to work.  It was a little ambitious since I've never embroidered anything but I did some googling, taught myself some stitches and I love the way it turned out.

I've got a few more Christmas gifts I'll hopefully finish in time and be back to post about before the holidays :)

  1. HI Kelsey! I absolutely love my new gnome ornament, you did an awesome job making it, and it looks terrific on my tree. I sent you yours a few days late, it should be getting to you tomorrow. I hope you love it!
