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.
It did take a while, but it was small, so that helped! I don’t know how people do needlepoint pillows.
Very cute keepsake … I would never have the patience for such detailed work. Looks perfect to me. Happy Holidays, Carole!
Cheryl, when I look at the handmade ornaments I can’t believe I had the patience to do them! I thought patience was something that increased with age?
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?
Welcome to the blog.
Yes, I think most of us heal, but it takes everyone a different amount of time. It took me about four years to recover from the divorce.
