I hope you are enjoying the sights and sounds of this Christmas season!!! My favorite is hearing all four of my children playing Christmas songs on the piano!!!
This week I am working on my Christmas shopping and addressing Christmas cards to share with friends and family. I also still have four pairs of pj pants to make for my little ones. That has been a tradition of ours for many years. I should do a round-up of past Christmas pjs that are here on the blog. (I have years and years of content on this blog concerning all types of sewing, tips, tricks, techniques, etc. There's a search bar on the right side that you can use to search the entire blog.)
Anyway, although I don't have many gifts wrapped and under the tree yet....I do have this sweet smocked ornament on the tree. I made this ornament many years ago and I still love it.
I have basic directions for making the ornament that I shared with my local smocking guild years ago, and I'm happy to share it with you too. Just drop me an email and I will send it to you. I do not have the pattern for the cute little tree though. It was in the Sew Beautiful Holiday 1988 issue. However, I tried to get a close-up picture so you can probably re-create it easily if you'd like.
