    ​Beutiful! They would make pretty appliqués on solid fabric blocks.

    Very pretty, Dotty. How about you organize an embroidered ornament swap? I'd join in a heartbeat. I have 2 programs for stand-alone lace ornaments and would love to swap with others.

    thANKS JUDY, What designs do you have???? I have 6 snowflakes and the ones above that dotty posted for me...no camera.
    anyone else make lace ornaments???

    a big thank you to Dotty for posting pics for me.

    i'd really like some feedback from those of you who do the ornament swap, as to weather you'd like these for the exchange.

    thanks

    I am loaded with ornaments but I would love to put these on a sweater or add a pinback.
    Why don't you do a side swap?

    The Xmas ornament swap is a great place for these! I've not made any with my embroidery machine, but would like to. I'm in on the swap again this year when it gets started.

    You use water soluble stabilizer, after embroidering rinse it and it disappears I use the stuff that looks like fabric, the clear stuff keeps tearing all the time.

    The ornaments are gorgeous!

    The site. "Emblibrary.com" has lots of lace ornaments and does have a reindeer. Not sure if it's the one you showed. Good luck. It seems as if the lace is made out of air. You need to use the same thread in the bobbin as the top thread. Make sure you have two to three bobbins already wound before you start. I've made the ornament covers and those who received them we're very happy to get them. Good luck making yours!

    I think a swap would be wonderful.. I would join - will be in the yearly ornament swap too. I do FSL all the time and love doing them for ornaments.. Aren't they fun to do? Jingle, you can always tie them onto a ribbon and decorate that way, hang them on curtains, etc. Pretty, pretty.. ;o)

    I also hang my machine embroidered lace in the windows, really wintery.

    I have some lace ornaments, which I bought, and they are each lightly sewn to an outer ring of suitable size so they can hang from the tree. They look great (designs need to come close to the ring in a few places to be securely and unobtrusively positioned. )

    just refound this thread, I use two layers of ultra solvy. nice and thick. some of the extra stuff left over from other embroideris I put in between the two layers, gives it a lot of strength. they have to soak overnight to get the solvy out.

    Beautiful-the better question is who wouldn't like to receive them?
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
