    A few Christmas Ornaments I've been working on

    Hi,


    Last Christmas I decided that this coming Christmas I want to set up a 4’ tree in my sewing studio decorated with ornaments I make throughout the year, with a craft theme. I decided I will make a different ornament each month and go from there…here are a few I’ve made this month. They are sew fun!!! I purchased the fabric ornament pattern from the Ornament Lady and tweaked it just a bit. The other ornaments I saw on Pinterest and pulled out my yoyo’s and started pinning. I still need to put bows and holders on them but want to make a bunch and then go pick out my ribbons at 1 time. These things are addictive!!!

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    they are so pretty, but seem to take forever. I love them. good thing starting now.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Super idea to do an ornament a month. I too would like a tree in my sewing room. Have fun with your project and post a picture when you have your ornamnets on the tree.)

    An OOM group would be a great idea- Ornament of the Month. Has anyone ever done anything like that?

    Very pretty. That is a great idea. Now at Christmas when you set up your tree, it will truly be a labor of love. And you will have the memories of finding and creating your ornaments. What a great idea.

    I've made your first ornament for myself and others. I watched a You Tube video. I even made them in different holiday colors. (Valentine's Day, Easter, St Patrick's Day etc.) I am going to put them in a pretty glass bowl in my sewing room. (Just as soon as I Find the right bowl.)

    I think an OOM club would be super! How do we start that?

    That folding star is so adorable. I just don't have the confidence to try and make one.

    I might try making the ornaments when my DH is at the medical center after surgery. It will keep my hands busy and I'll be getting things done at the same time.

    Your ornaments look wonderful!

    My friend and I were at a quilt shop in Las Vegas this week and they displayed the folded Star balls on a small tree. And the most fantastic one was the one where they had a fabric with roses as the center and then did the folding area around the roses. We had been cutting fabric for a DWR for her daughter and we both thought that would be an excellent hi-lite to go with the quilt when she finishes. Or maybe as a tease of the quilt to come.
