Hello! Gobble gobble! A happy and healthy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Americans! But not that healthy...have another slice of pie and throw on some mashed potatoes. Besides all the food, I have so much to be thankful to my Creator for. It restores my soul to set aside a time to spend with our families and express our love and gratitude to each other and to the Lord. So many blessings! Not the least of which are my loyal readers and customers. Thank you! But I don't especially count football among my blessings. I should try to summon up some team loyalty for the Iron Bowl party I'm attending. Roll Tide. *limply waving pom pom*

Hopefully in time for your Christmas hand makery, here is the new Goose a-Laying ornament pattern. This is the 6th pattern! I'm halfway through the series now and I'm still loving each one.
Lots of color possibilities. Here are some of my favorites:
And like all the others in this ornament series, they feature the number on the backs.
And this set, like all the ornaments in the 12 Days series, uses a Sulky printable stabilizer to streamline the process. Oh my lands, it really makes the whole thing so quick and easy! No hand-tracing or transferring embroidery patterns! Just print and sew right on the printed lines, as shown in this Gold Ring photo:
To download the PDF sewing pattern for Goose a-Laying or any of the other Twelve Days series, visit my Etsy shop or my Craftsy shop.
Next year will start with Swan a-Swimming and go from there!

I'm working feverishly to finish writing the Goose a Laying pattern and get samples made so I can release the 6th Twelve Days pattern in plenty of time. It will include this egg! Because what good is a Goose a Laying without an egg?
