Annie Ornies

Well, this is the last of the patterns I found for $.69 apiece and although it's not quite a Raggedy Ann, it's close enough. Ornies is the primitive word for ornaments and basically people in the Prim world make several bowl fillers, and or table sitters.

They are usually grunged with a tea/cinnamon solutions that is brushed on the ornament after it's done, then it is allowed to dry or lots of times the piece is placed in the oven at a low temp. Be sure to watch your ornament!

I'm going to design my own Raggedy Ann and Andy ornie one of these days.....soon.

I didn't meet my goal of finishing my studio on Sunday and all that is left is to install the stair rails and the window trim with the wall baseboard. Sounds simple enough doesn't it?

I gotta tell ya, I have been very distracted with unpacking the mountain of craft boxes that have been stored in my bedroom for the last 9 months. I'm itching......

Oh well, I'm confident it'll be there for me next week. C&G Design

Cute ornaments.
Your "office" will be finished lickide-split. All will be stored in proper places neat as a pin.

Hi Dawn, when you start on these, please let us know how you antique the fabric. I've been wanting to learn that for some time.
