No Paper Cuts This Year

Last year, I wrote about opening a box of old family Christmas ornaments and how painful it was. This year I felt good when I saw them. A bit like seeing old friends again. The heart does indeed heal.

I made this ornament before my kids were born, when I had more free time. Even if I had the time now, I don’t think I’d have the fortitude to stick with this kind of project. Too tedious. Anyway, here’s the front of the ornament I like to call “Up on the Rooftop”:

And here’s the back. This was one of my first needlepoint projects, so it’s far from perfect.

Hope your week’s going well. . . .

    I remember that post. Yes, we heal, don’t we?
    This is very cute. It must have taken a long time to do. It looks perfect to me.

    Lovely photos and Christmas ornaments!
    It is like “paper cut”. Sorry to hear that. Do we really heal? Did it take a long time for you to recover from the lost?
