As I mentioned before, Mike and I decided to keep it simple in our Christmas gift giving this year. We each made an ornament for each other, and decided it would be a sweet tradition to start.
You've already seen my bird ornament, but Mike made a little monster that he named "Eggtooth Goobles", since all creepy-cute beings need ridiculous names. Those green things are supposed to be wings. But bless his heart, he sewed it inside out and flipped it so he wouldn't have stitches showing. He started before as a surprise, otherwise, I would have gladly shared my easier to sew felt with him!
Mike has always been drawing funny little monsters, and this one is a spoof on me, since my dad calls me a "Turkey" and I bit two little girls when I was a baby. That's right. I broke the skin too.
I couldn't stop sewing, so made one to start make up for the six Christmases without ornaments. I put our initials and made it look like an old school Victorian Valentine.
Mike must have really loved my ornament, since he gave me an extra present of his own when I returned in January. It's in there with the other rings he's given me over the years.
It took me almost 2 weeks to come out of shock, but yes, he asked both of my parents and of course they said yes. Granted, if Mike had responded differently when talking to my mom about Florida Gators football, she may have said no. Ha!
P.S. I said yes too!
