AURIFIL Ornament Hop


Woohoo! It's our turn to give you all a lovely ornament to decorate your tree, or house, or workspace, or....wherever!


Don't you ADORE ornaments? I bought a little sparkly white frosted tree last year, can't wait to get it out again and splash it with colorful ornaments.

Raise your hand if you already have Christmas decorations up and holiday tunes cranked up?!

We've been running around like crazy getting our ornament ready for the blog hop. Of course we had to get a tree just to hang it on! Thankfully, we had a little help from a couple of our Aurifil friends...






LOLOLOL! That just cracks me up every time!

Okay, now you're ready to ROCK with our Aurifil ornament.


We stitched this SWEET little winter mitten!

  3. Such a cute ornament! Thanks for the design. :)

    My most treasured ornament is a small metal train - about 12" long and 2" high. It was dirt cheap, but it was the first ornament I bought for my own house, and it has moved across countries and continents with me for the past 15 years. It has a place of honor on the coffee table every Christmas.

  18. my fav ornaments are those that i made for my sis almost thirty years ago ... crocheted in the round, white thread, starched and sprayed in a variety of ornaments - angels, bells, stars, balls, animals, birds, figures, any christmassy thing became an ornament that she still decorates her tree with every year.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have a little blown glass bird cage that belonged to my mother. her brother gave it to her when she was just a teen. She is now 88, so it is very old. It no longer hangs on the tree, but has a special place year round on my piano. Your little mittens are adorable.

  24. I have so many ornaments that I love that I don't really think I could choose a favourite unless a tree topper counts. Then I'd have to say that our very first Angel tree topper simply because it was for my husband's and my very first tree back in 1981.

  86. I love ornaments, especially non-traditionally colored with glitter. My favorite was on the tree when I was little, and I snagged it to add to my own tree. It's hot pink with glitter flowers on the side. Since I was the only girl, I thought it was mine all along, lol. Still a treasure on my tree each year.

My favourite new ornament is one I bought at Pike Place Market in Seattle about 19 years ago - so not SO new - it is a ceramic disc with a reindeer on it and it says "We All Shine On" that typifies the holiday spirit to me.

  90. My favorite ornament is a little mouse whose body is a bell. I remember it being on the tree when I was little (based on the date my mom wrote on it in paint pen, I would've been 2 when we first got it), and my mom gave it to me when I first got married and didn't have any ornaments to put up! My son loves it too :)

  110. Mittens remind me of going sledding when I was little, first time out for the day our mittens would get wet, when we wanted to go out again that day we would hit our sock draw and put 2 - 3 pair on our hands. Thank you for the memory. My favorite ornament was given to me 34 yrs ago from a co-worker, teddy bear girl swinging on a swing and a teddy bear boy on a trike made out of what looks like crushed nut shells with the smell of cinnamon.
