HOTH Day 3: Love Where You Live Ornament with Pickup Some Creativity

Hi Gwenny Penny fans! My name is Chris.

My piece of blogland is called Pickup Some Creativity. You  may remember the little sew-along that Gwen and I did together last spring. Gwen is a dear friend, and I'm thrilled she invited me over today.

Each year we give our children a Christmas ornament, that way when they grow up they'll have ornaments to decorate their own tree with.

For Christmas 2011, I wanted to do something fun to remind them of the two places we've lived in Idaho this year. After seeing some fun state-related crafts, and inspiration from all of Gwen's fun embroidery hoop ideas, I came up with the Love Where You Live Christmas Ornament.

With just a tiny bit of embroidery, and one of my favorite tools... heat n bond lite, you can make a sweet little ornament to celebrate all the places to love in your life.

Aren't they fun?

I hope you'll pop on over and get the full tutorial. I have a blog full of tutorials, and even a little Etsy shop with sewing patterns and banners (I'm hopelessly addicted to banners!)

Thank you, Gwen, for the invitation. I'm excited to see what everyone else is making!

I LOVE this project! And it would make a fantastic gift, too. I just added this to a couple of names on my list. Chris is a gifted seamstress and puts so much love into everything she makes. I love her scalloped buntings, and she has a tutorial for the most adorable Swedish woven heart ornament that would look beautiful on the Christmas tree. Make sure you visit her blog and leave a comment on her Love Where You Live Ornament tutorial! Chris, thanks so much for joining in on the Haul Out the Holly fun this year :)
