Have you ever gone through phases where you only want to do certain projects? If you go back to my blog in its infancy, you will see a lot of sock projects. For a while I was doing möbius scarves. Now I have Solomon knot projects.

My grand kids wanted a piggy back. My husband stepped and gave up his 49ers piggy bank to our grandson. I made one with duct tape. The cardboard tube at the end of a roll of duct tape was the base.
I used two half circles on top and a circle on the bottom. It is not perfect, but she is cute. More importantly I made it with the grand kids help.

So here we have two Santa ornaments. The one on the right is a vintage on that my mother got from co-workers many years ago. I am going to guess it has been at least 30 years ago. My mom gave this to me this past Christmas. The Santa on the right is the one I tried to re-create. I am not that completely satisfied how my turned out. I am going to make adjustments and try again.

Christmas will soon be here, and unfortunately my projects are not a priority right now. I just started my Master’s Degree and it is going to be my focus for the next two years. That doesn’t mean that I have stopped altogether. I did get the ornaments done from the kit I bought last year. Yesterday I bought 12 more Styrofoam balls and ribbon to make more ornaments. They are either going to go on my tree or given away as gifts. My ornaments might be a variety of colors and yarns.

Now I have started covering up my styrofoam balls. I did use double pointed needles to eliminate the side seem. So far the ornaments are looking good.
I even did a crocheted version. I might buy more small styrofoam balls.
