Gee, that sounds awfully lot like something God said.
I am not God. But I am the owner of several shrunken wool sweaters and the crazy notion that I can make stuff out of them, which practically makes me divine.
I was supposed to attend a Christmas party today for my church’s small group. However, the sickness gods took one look at our family and said, “Hey look, they are all not sick enough. They haven’t had their quota of ailment and malaise. Let’s make them all feel like crap.”
So, we did not attend said Christmas party where we were to bring an ornament of our choice for a dirty Santa gift exchange.
I shall do my first, ever, giveaway with this ornament. One lucky reader, chosen by technologically supa smart and fail-safe methods (i.e. closing my eyes and pointing to a comment) shall be the owner of one earth ornament made from upcycled wool sweaters in blue and green.
Here is a picture.
And to note the year in which you received this extremely awesome ornament, I’ve also added the year in green numbers. (Editor’s note: it was butt hard to cut out 2008 from a sweater.) Addie has informed me that the numbers are “crooked”, but I assure you, it was intentional.
The ornament measures 4 1/4″ and is two spheres sewn together with a blanket stitch. The green blobs, aka continents and numbers, were added using my trusty Clover brand needle felter. The hanger is a simple white ribbon which measures 3″.
Would you like to add this to your tree? First, leave me a comment saying you are supa interested and must have this one of a kind, hand made ornament. You have until December 17, Wednesday to enter. I will select the giveaway winner by 5:00 Wednesday afternoon.
Merry Christmas and may the world look wonderful on your Christmas tree.
P.S. Does this ornament remind anyone else of Edvard Munch’s The Scream?
