A Finish and some Green!

Thanks for joining me today and I hope all of you that celebrate Christmas are getting things done and finding time to enjoy this beautiful season. I have the goal of making my grand -daughter, Hannah, a Christmas ornament each year.  Those of you who know how slow I am at finishing can understand that for me, this is quite a commitment.  Anyway, it is finished and I will get it in the mail tomorrow.
We have a Christmas song that they play quite a bit up here.  It is called,"Christmas in the Northwest."  My favorite line in the song is, " Christmas in the Northwest is a gift God wrapped in green."  When I got up this morning and looked out the window I thought of that line.  I grabbed the camera to share the "green" with you.



 I love the back fabric for a child's ornament. See the snowmen.

 This was just the right edging.  I got it some time ago at a  sewing expo. I wish I had more.

 All the following pictures were taken off our deck.  We have the same view out the window of the master bedroom.

 Some people don't like the moss.  I think it is quite pretty



 We have lots of these big sword ferns growing wild.  They stay green all winter.

 
Even my hellebores are showing life. I will have flowers soon.
Thanks again and have a wonderful week!!

  1. Love your ornament!!! So beautiful! I make 8 ornaments each year for my children and their spouses, my husband and my 2 grandchildren. And I agree the finishing is the hard part. Love your "green" views!

  17. Oh, Hannah will love her newest ornament, Barb--how cute! I love all the green, too. We have a lot here in western PA, but not as much as you! It doesn't look like we'll be having a white Christmas this year.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  20. Hannah's ornament is so cute and that fabric makes perfect finish. I enjoyed seeing your view from your deck. We don't have snow right now, but we also don't have any green either. How neat that you have flowers blooming.
