Just a bit ago I told you about the book Buttermilk Basin’s Ornament Extravaganza from Stacy West. Well I got so excited about that one even though I haven’t made anything from the book yet…I decided to check out the companion book Buttermilk Basin’s Ornament Extravaganza II.
I liked that this book had some ornaments that would be very easy for beginners. All three of these would be great.
I’ve always thought I should be one of those grandma’s that makes an ornament for each of their grandkids every year. So far, I’ve not tackled that. Somehow I can’t imagine making 10 ornaments each year, but if I have 10 grandkids, that’s how it would work.
If you are one of those grandma’s this book would be a great option. There are so many patterns in it.
I really like some of these as they are more Winter than Christmas.
These snowmen would be great for Winter too.
I love the snowman. The Santa is cute too…
This is another set that would be good for Winter and not just Christmas.
I love all the photography and setting in the book. All are so cute!! They decorate and display them just as I would want to.
These little gingerbreads are so cute!!
I have a box of wool upstairs. I wish it was more organized so I could have easier access to it. Hmm. Maybe that’s something I should do as I really do enjoy wool applique. AH HA!! Just as I typed that out, I have an idea on how I could better organize it. Watch for the coming …or at least I hope I actually get to it.
It looks like a great book. I haven’t bought it yet, but boy am I tempted. To make it worse, I went to the Stitchery Nook and they now have wool . That makes it even more tempting.
If you’re interested, you can find the book HERE.
