24 Days of Ornaments: Dec the 11th

Isn't he a happy fellow?

Twenty five years ago, give or take one or two, the women of the church decided to have a Christmas bazaar. This Cowboy Santa was one of a set of 6 ornaments we cut and sewed together. There were two different angels, a snowman, a more traditional Santa, and a 'NOEL.' I can't remember what we sold them for, nor if we copied or designed them ourselves, something I'm not capable of, but there was a real artist in the group.

I remember these ornaments, however, not for the artistry involved nor the labor, but for the camaraderie we had as we worked on a group project, donating time, effort and materials. In the end, we received far more in return.
