The Assembly Line

I didn't quite get these done for this Christmas ... so now I'm officially really really REALLY early for next year. ;)

Now when it comes to doing something over and over, listen, I'll pick this sort of repetative task any day of the week and twice on Sundays.

Especially when I have lazy family days to fill.

Why, it's still winter and you can still go skating. These are way too beautiful to let them disappear after xmas. Hildy

Yes, I agree with Hildy! Definitely something you can keep out all winter long! The stitching is beautiful!

Hildy's got the right idea! And you aren't the only one...I'm still finishing up a few of the "Gingerbread Girl" ornaments from this series! You can still have cookies after Christmas, yes??? :)

I am always stitching something while watching TV and it's OK if it is repetitive. Your stitching is very neat, and I love how you transfer your design onto the felt.

These are so sweet.....I too think you could have skate ornaments on display all winter long! And your embroidery stitches are so NeAt!!! Adorable!

You're not alone in not finishing an intended Christmas make! I always have something left over, but you'll feel great when they're complete. With the winter snows still here (and I think planning to stay for a while), these lovely little skates will not be out of place adorning a special place in your home. :) Wendy

I like assembly line also - kind of like therapy only cheaper ... well... then again... come to think of it... maybe NOT bahahahaha - but therapy none the less to keep me sane!

These are SO pretty!! I've always loved skates and these are just beautiful! You made me laugh out loud when you said you were REALLY early for Christmas 2013! But, hey! There's absolutely nothing wrong with that! You're just way ahead of us! :)

What is the material that you put over your fabric for the pattern? Does it tear or wash away? Thanks...great idea.

I miss the days when you posted almost every day. Your skates are lovely.

Hi Friend! Hope you and yours are well, and that things are coming along well on your house! :)

I have a fixation with skates too. I only ever rollerskated mostly (in florida) but dreamed of Ice Skating.... not too shabby the few times I have done it but I don't quite twirl like Dorothy Hamill --age reveal : / LOL! So may you share where you found these lovely pattern. Working full time has stolen my pleasure of blog hopping like I used to. CONGRATS!! on your book.
