Christmas Crafting

Joy received the Jesse Tree ornaments I made her for Christmas in the mail today (I gave them to her on Christmas morning lacking the final step--appliqued but not sewn into their final, pillow-like form, and asked for them back (eek!) so I could finish them off). I mailed them on Saturday, and they arrived! Woo hoo! So, now I feel like I can show you the final "product" without giving away the fun of her seeing them first. :)

Here they are...























I actually have a couple more to upload (there are 28 in all), including a couple of my favorites. I love, loved, LOVED working on them. It was so sweet to be able to rehearse the Gospel as I made them and to think of my SWEET sister while I sewed. :) As I was telling someone the other day (because it still blesses and amazes me after growing up with 2 brothers and no sisters), she's known me over half my life. What a gift to me!
