Today's ornament was based on an article in the December 2009 issue of Better Homes & Gardens. There are some more due as Christmas Craft Challenge items also from this article, however as usual tonight's item is only "loosely" based on the article as we all know I can't follow instructions.
I also have to confess that I was in need of some bling in my life, though maybe I did go a tad OTT, but then what is Christmas without bling or at least something pretty and shiny.
I do have to also say that hand sewing all the sequins and beads on reminded me of many years ago when my sister Keryn and I used to dance competitively (Tap & Jazz) and all the hours we spent in hand sewing all the beads and sequins onto costumes, even my father was known to have picked up a needle in desparation. Ahhh thank you for allowing me to indulge in the nostalgia trip.
