Ornament finishes and gifts

During our visit with my aunt in November, she gave me this wooden bread bowl which belonged to my grandparents.  It was handmade by his brother for them when they married in 1896!  My aunt says she can remember her mother using it to make bread dough or biscuit dough every day for their large family.  I have been wanting a wooden bowl for some time to use to display my stitchy smalls!  It's rather long, so will take a lot of them to fill it!  Now, I will have another goal for the coming year - make lots more smalls and actually finish them!!!  But, I am so so happy to have it!  Thanks Aunt Becky!

 She also gave me this butter mold with a pretty flower design that belonged to my grandmother.

I did the finish for 2 more ornaments, but still have a few more to go.

Thanks for stopping by!  

Happy Stitching!

The little ornaments are just wonderful. I have my Grandmother's bowl too. It has a special place on my kitchen table. I fill it with seasonal things. We have a butter mold from my DH's Grandmother.
