Would you like to see...

Would you like to see the cute little ornie that I received from Tammy at The Primitive Place?

swap ornie

We were two of the participants of an ornie swap that Wendy of Ravenwood Whimzies had put together. Tammy was my secret swap partner. Her doll ornie has already found it's spot on my little tree. I really like that she isn't too Christmasy and I can keep her out all year long. Thanks Tammy!!!
Now I have to tell you a funny story about her ornie (hope you don't mind Tammy).
This was the picture that I first took of the doll ornie.
You don't see anything wrong do you?
Well my daughter did !!
She looked at the picture nonchalantly and said "Is it smoking a cigarette?"
We both had to go into the kitchen and take a second look at her...
No she wasn't smoking. What we saw was the little jute string that was tied around her neck holding her bonnet on. It was poking up in front of her face.
Oh my gosh! Not only did this little ornie give me joy when I opened the package, but she gave us a chuckle a few days later too.


I have signed up for the November Friday Night Sew-in that Heidi and Bobbi have organized. This will be my first time. It sounds like a lot of fun & a great way to get the mojo to finish some of those Christmas gifts I need to do.
Would you like to know what it is all about?
On Friday 11/19, you spend some time in your craft space and work on your projects. Then on Saturday you post about what you have done on your blog. You can post some pictures on the FNSI Flickr group also. On Sunday they will draw a name from the particapants to win a prize (4 prizes this month). There will be a MrLinky list for you to go visit the other participants.
The FNSI Giveaway this month is sponsored by Me and My Sister Designs. Me and My Sister Designs have created many adorable lines of fabric for Moda.
If you would like to join in on the fun then go to Heidi's blog:
