Yesterday was the meeting of the Boonsboro Chapter of ATHA. It was our annual Christmas gathering with wonderful goodies to eat and an exchange of handmade Christmas ornaments.
As you can see the goodie table was loaded with
wonderful homemade treats
The rest of this entry concerns the handmade
ornaments. I am not going to attempt to tell you
who made what because to many names would be involved.
This is only a sampling of the ornaments
that were exchanged.

There were many more ornaments than I show here.
Many were wrapped and I could not get
pictures of them. All were very creative. Some were
sewn, others were felted, but most were hooked.

I hope that you are enjoying this little
show of ornaments. It shows some of the creative
juices that are flowing in this group.

I had no idea that such a variety of patterns
and ideas existed for ornaments.

My hope in showing these wonderful hooked items
to you is that you will get your creative juices
flowing and make your own interesting ornaments
for next years tree.

I agree with Julia, the teddy bear is delightful and so well done. Did you do that one???

Hi Doris, dear friend, I totally understand the busyness of this time of year.

My calves are starting to get back their appetite but I have to increase their milk a quarter of a bottle at a time. They didn't had any medicine this evening and each drank a bottle and a quarter. In the morning I'll increase to a bottle and a half and if they can handle that then at suppertime I'll increase it again.

Take care and stay safe. JB
