Leaving it to the Last Minute
Yep - done it again. Leaving Christmas to the last minute. So the Peacocks are about to get packed away until after Christmas (maybe), and I am off to make at least three Christmas Ornies as special last-minute gifts. And I still have a box (well, matchbox size), to pack for my class lunch on Thursday. And real-life things to do, so I better get my skates on.
This is the style of Ornie I will make again. Just a square, hung from a point, with a bead drop on the bottom. And I have already printed silk angels to go in the centre.
And at least I know the main thing/s I am getting for Christmas from my beloved. We were making a quick run through a bookshop yesterday (Angus and Robertson at Fountain Gate, Sharlee), and it seemed to have a good craft section. I spied two I hadn't seen around (one I had heard was out), and asked if Christmas hints were in order. The Dear Man grabbed them both, but now we have to play the game of my pretending I haven't seen them or know anything about them.
And I want to read them! Now! I only got a really quick look in the shop. Rats!
