Aurifil Christmas Ornament

Hello and welcome to my turn on the Aurifil Christmas Ornament blog hop!

Aurifil blog hop logo #2

Sherri Falls is the genius behind our cute little ornament design and she has done all the work preparing the. pdf patterns for all of you.  (Thank you for all of your hard work Sherri!)  I had great fun stitching my ornament and I love Sherri’s simple construction method — it really makes these ornaments go together quickly.  For my ornament,  I chose to do Christmas stockings waiting to be filled by Santa.

I also played around just a bit with Sherri’s basic ornament design. I added mini ric rac around the outside of the inner circle.  I really wanted to put ric rac or piping around the outside of the ornament too, but I just didn’t have time. If only my sewing machine were set up in BigDaddy’s hospital room!

You can download the pattern for my ornament HERE.  Don’t forget to check out Pat Sloan and Emily Cier — today is their ornament day too. Also, don’t forget to leave a comment on each of our blogs for a chance to win some great prizes from Aurifil.

Have fun stitching!

  7. Your ornament is so cute. I’m going to make these for my grandchildren for next year. I paged down and read your post before this one. I hand pieced stars like these last year. I made a small wall hanging “Seven Sister’s” style. I didn’t even notice your not spacing your fussy cut pieces every other one. It’s is definitely not noticeable (unless you are looking for it :)

    Its been so long, I bet you might think I’d dropped off the edge of the world. I have just read all the way back on your blog. I’m glad your Dad is recovering and I love the picture of that lady with him that kinda looks like you. What a treat! Your socks are cuties too. Have to have something to keep yourself busy in the hospital. Been there. Sure do miss you. I’m kind of stuck not unloading boxes although I’ve had alot of work done on the condo. Boxes have memories, sometimes good, sometimes sad. I’m going to Seattle for holidays to have fun – too quiet around here. Positive thinking and prayers for you and yours. Hope things get back to your crazy self soon and your Dad feels good. Big hugs, Robin

  115. Love this traditional holiday scene! It will definitely be a fun ornament to make. :)
