Wooo - just had an inspiration flash! And yay, I have all the supplies I need already. I am going to have so much fun making this ornament for @marionberries!

I received this quilted ornament from @marionberries. I really like the added embellishment of the tassel and the decorative stitches! It is so well done, with all the seams lining up beautifully! marionberries, I’ve never worked with such tiny half square triangles, were they difficult to piece? Thank you, Carol!

Such a tiny little quilt! Beautiful!

Two ornaments arrived today.
A very festive little bird with beautiful blue wings from @marionberries is hanging on our audiolight. I love the fun colors!


Just nearby is the orange tabby with a B that @Lynx2Lancer made for my son’s birthday. The stitch work is beautiful! Such a sweet cat!
We both have been reading Fruits Basket manga and B loves Kyo who turns into an orange tabby if hugged by a girl.

Thank you both for these delights!

Yes, that’s why there is a button in the center. I had these left over strips from making masks so gave it a try. I’m glad it was only a few squares. I’m glad you love it

What a sweet, well-fed bird! I’m glad my cat ornament is loved!

I received the most amazing woodpecker ornament today! @Tapestry I hope you make your own post about it so everyone can see it and read about the technique you used. I’m curious!

Look how amazing this is! It is so textured and dimensional. Check it out from the side:

This is one of my favorite kinds of woodpecker. So pretty!

Thank you so much!

Love @marionberries’ quilted square and happy bird! @Lynx2Lancer, your kitty cat is adorable! And @Tapestry, that woodpecker is amazing! I hope you do share the technique.

I received from @Lynx2Lancer today as well! Which is pretty funny as she sent the package ages ago. Silly post office!

@Lynx2Lancer made me a fun little magic 8 ball! I never would have thought of that for a 2020 ornament but it really fits. Thank you!

The woodpecker ornament I sent is just layered polymer clay used to “paint.” I’ve made a separate post about it here.

Your woodpecker is so much cooler than the magic 8 ball, but I still think it’s funny, and hope you like it. I’m so glad it found its ways to you!

Indeed, the magic 8 ball is very fitting. Love the woodpecker - that 3d look is awesome.

They really are! Even the troll of a mockingbird in the neighborhood that makes various alarm noises. He likes to keep me in my toes.

Love this as a 2020 memory ornament!

The magic 8 ball is awesome! I finished up my ornament for @curiousfae . Brought it to work with me to package it up, and then I plan to mail it on my way home at 8am tomorrow.

@Tapestry, what a sweet little woodpecker. I love the dimensional technique.
@Lynx2Lancer that kitty looks just like our little ginger foster kitty.

Sirius is about 2 weeks old here.
And that stuck in 2020 magic 8 ball is hilarious!

I received the best non-traditional Santa from @endymion. I am still chuckling over this bad-(deleted) Santa. Shaved head, day-old white beard, tattoos, and his little behind (last picture). This is definitely a non-traditional Santa. I love him.

She said it was a gourd and the body is a wooden diorama ornament and his legs are paper shoe supports that come with new shoes. Creative! The legs dangle like a bell clapper. So he boogies too!
