Candle Christmas Tree Ornament - free pattern

We've had a few exciting weeks and I feel at last that my feet are just about hitting the ground!

Most of the excitement centred around our grandson's wedding which was amazing, with a stunning setting, gorgeous decorations, wonderful answers to prayer, and a very happy couple. My darling Hubby had the honour of marrying the couple and giving the message, along with our son-in-law who was in charge of the ceremony. It was such a joy to celebrate with them and the 90 guests who attended. Daughter and I spent quite a few hours stringing fairy lights!

The day after the wedding we partied with our daughter-in-law for her 50th birthday. Of course, the best part of all these celebrations was being able to spend extended time with our family!

Not to be outdone, hubby also had his birthday last week, so we continued the celebrations by going to see the superb production of "Singin' in the Rain" , complete with its 12,000 litres of water!!!

Life is returning now to some sort of normality and I actually opened the sewing machine for a couple of days - seems like months since that has happened! You won't be needing a sewing machine for the Christmas ornament I have for you this week:

I've chosen a hexagon shape (on point!) for the decoration this time. It is so simple to make with just a few scraps of felt and some cute stitches. You can choose what you want to put around the edge - I love the effect of the blue crochet shells.

The pattern is here in my Craftsy Store.

I've started work on cutting 180 Dresden blades for a magazine project. Needless to say, I'm very thankful for my Accuquilt Go Cutter at times like this! Now to stitch them together!

Happy stitching!

I love this ornament, too! Thank you so much for doing this in the midst of all your wonderful family celebrations. I'm still trying to figure out how they corral that much water for the play! What a wonderful start to spring you have had.

The fairy lights look gorgeous-it must have taken you quite a while to hang them.
