I did Timothy as the second installment in my series of mice for baby Allyson, daughter of my friend, Rachel. This is one of only a few ornaments that Ouida, Clif, and I have all made.

We're not very creative, are we? They all look the same!!

Further evidence of the old adage: GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE!

Dawdling Duck

Another one for me! When I saw Clif's version of this ornament, I thought it was so cute. I knew I wanted to make it for myself. I thought it would take a long time because it seemed like it had a lot of pieces with the little suitcase and all. It really wasn't that bad, though. I didn't make any changes other than choosing my own colors.

Marching Band Bear #3

I said it was my turn to get an ornament, but we were ready to start a movie and I didn't have one cut out. I cut out all four of these when I started them two years ago so I could make sure all the colors matched. For convenience, I decided to go ahead and do this one.

Here's Bear #1

Here's Bear #2

So here is Kelly's third member of her personal marching band. His hat is missing its pom pom because those are at home in Ohio. I accidentally got my drum mallet a little long -- OOPS!

I've known Kelly since she was in kindergarten and I can't believe I've just completed the ornament for her junior year. Only one more to go!
