Whatever your hand finds to do.....

Ecclesiastes 9:10
Whatever your hand finds to do, 
do it with all your might.

I received an e-mail from Jess this past Monday with a link to some advent ornaments she asked if I could make.  I asked if she wanted them for next year, and she said yes.  But.....if you know me very well,  then you know that I don't do well knowing that I have something "hanging over my head".
So....what would any Momma, or Nannie do?
Of course.....
spend many hours and late nights stitching by hand 25 felt ornaments!!!

Don't look too closely at the stitching.
I haven't done this type of work in quite some time!
I did get plenty of practice in doing blanket stitches!
The Bible verses that go along with each ornament were printed on address labels in case Jess wants to stick them on the backs.  Simple twine makes a hanger.

what have your hands been finding to do lately?
Are you making a lot of your CHRISTmas gifts?

Leave me a comment,
and/or a link to your blog with pictures of your creations!
I would love to see your handiwork!

HOPE everybody as a Sweet Saturday!!

Breathing in Grace, here for the site that I used to make these ornaments.
She also includes a link where she got her idea from.


  1. Deb, those are awesome. You are so talented, I always enjoy your Wise Owl Designs. Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. Ms. Deb, you are amazing! Those will be some of the most treasured Advent ornaments anywhere on the earth because they were made by Nannie. Hugs to you.

  3. Oh my! That's impressive! What treasures these are.

  4. Those are absolutely beautiful!!!!


Kind words are like honey—
sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
