handmade gifts 2014: gold ring and goose a-laying ornaments for robyn


Presenting Robyn's very tardy Gold Ring and Goose A-Laying ornaments. Super tardy. Three years tardy. Wait, that can't be right. Wow, is that right? Great gophers, it is right. But I'm back on track! Halfway to your complete set, Robyn. Longest running Christmas gift ever.


I like to include some sparkly sequins and glass beads on these one-of-a-kinds for her.


I had fun making them despite the fact this is actually the second ring and fourth goose ornament I've made for her during the dry spell. Sometimes it takes a few years tries to get it right. (Yes, dear readers, this is a sneak peek of the future patterns number 5 and 6.)

    1. They will be designed with your arch nemesis but you can sub in sequins if you are a quitter like that. Haha. JK, Bethie.

  6. Yes, ladies, I know that I am lucky, lucky, lucky! Every handmade gift from Larissa is a treasure - although, as fantastic as they are, they pale in comparison to her friendship. Love you, Larry, and thank you again!
