Merry Christmas!

Tree Ornaments. Some are elegant, country, christmassy,
or are derived from nature. I have found that those ornaments
that sit on a shelf & are leggy make to be some of the cutest
pincushions ever. Right now there are 2 of those that sit on the top of my
sewing machine ready to do duty - after the holidays away
they will go until next year - or those might find a new home & new
ones will take their place. Some of the best
pincushions can come from those tree ornaments - so start looking
at them in a different light. Be sure to pick those ornaments
that are not too soft & not too hard - pick inbetween.
A woman can never have enough
pincushions - that is if you sew alot. They come in handy when you
velcro it to the side of an ironing board, are close to your sewing
machine & near or on your cutting table. With a little imagination
you can fill up a little basket with these little ornaments & be able to
pick & choose which one you want to stick. These are so cute & they do
bring a smile to your face when you look at them. If you know
someone that loves to sew, a basket of these ornaments
would be so cute
as a gift - just be sure to leave a note inside telling them
what they are used for other than just christmas ornaments.
Many of these can be bought at family dollar stores - for as
little as 50 cents each. Purchase as many as needed for the size of the basket
that you are giving.
