My mom likes to make our Christmas ornaments. And all the ones she makes are to decorate my grandparents house. Not a single one in our own house! Her argument is that nobody comes to our house soooo... what is the case... But... this year will be different... almost. Not that somebody will come to visit us but that she wants to have something to decorate a window.

Last month, when she was cleaning the closet, she found a box full of old magazines. She threw away all of them but one that she really likes a lot. This is a Christmas magazine that contains several cross-stitch ornaments. She gave it a look to them and decided to make one of those.

The figures are finished...

Here I am wondering if they have squeakie things inside...
I mean... they look like squeakie toys!

Nope. She told me these are not toys...

Now, she is assembling them...

And of course I am helping her (????)

I hope I can show it to you next time!

Have a good night

Those are furry furry nice!


Miley said...

Very well done Lorenza's mum!
They are so pretty, but DO look like squeaky toys. Lorenza, your mum says they are not to be played with.. if she is assembling them.. isn't her way of playing with them?

Since she is so creative, maybe she'll make you a huge one and make it squeaky. :)

Cuddles & licks,
Love Miley xxx

Hola Lorenza!
Wow, now you'll have decorations at home too. That's great and I think they are beautiful. You have a very talented Mom, but I'm sure it's because of your help(?). Helping is hard work, so I think you needed that rest.
Grr and Woof,

JacksDad said...

How pretty. I love the gold and white together!

Lucy-Fur, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Yep, those should totally have squeakers in them. But, I feel your pain - I have the same look on my face when Mom is doing her cross-stitch (she's moved on from fat doggies to making presents for relatives)... We are still in awe of your closet, BTW!!!
