    Here is a photo of the Christmas ornaments gifts I made from Dec.'10 thru Feb.'11. I used Xmas scraps and/or fat eighths. I like the fact they look like they're quilted. Really found it fun and easy to do while watching TV, waiting for an appointment, etc. I made enough for each of the staff persons at my aunt's retirement home and then just kept going (some for relatives and me too).

    Made a box of bows (see below) which I'll attach with an ornament hanger in Nov. using a glue gun. Also made 6 Spring/Easter ones and three sets of hanging Valentine ones.

    If interested, directions can be found at
    www.make-stuff.com/projects/quiltball.html

    Bought the 3" styro balls at Michael's with coupons and the MANY pins needed at Michael's or JoAnns with 40% off coupons or notions' sales. Be sure to use a thimble.

    Great & your bows are a beautiful addition. Now you'll have time to twiddle your thumbs in Dec. while everyone else is scrambling to finish gifts!!
