Christmas in July

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is participating in gift exchanges. This past Christmas I attempted way, waaaay too many gift projects and ran out of time to make an ornament for my dear friend. She made the most adorable ornaments for my tree (I would post pics, but they are packed away) so I decided a couple months ago to celebrate "Christmas in July" --this would allow me to make her long overdue gift and not feel like such a horrible slacker of a friend.

She and I both love I knew this was the perfect ornament when I spotted the kit in the store. I haven't done a lot of hand sewing in quite a while, so some of my stitching is a little off. Maybe someday my handiwork will be as impressive as this lady. I just adore the ornament kits in Alicia Paulson's shop. Absolutely adorable. Hopefully my pal won't mind too much that I am terribly late in delivering her ornament. It was created with love in every stich and I hope she feels it when hanging this ornament in December. Merry Christmas in July everyone!
