    hehe well I found a nail file to use to shove the pins in. But I gotta warn ya, same warning as the other one, I can't make a straight line to save my life.. or even spacing of anything.. hehehe. But it's cute. It's.. holy hand-grenade-ish.. for those of you who might be Monty Python fans.

    Quiltermomma, good for you. I am trying snowflakes, and I get to the end and doesn't the thread come out of the thread take-up lever and make a huge birdsnest on the back. So now I gotta fix that. Don't know why, but both things I have tried have become a nightmare (and I don't even live on Elm Street).

    I double the heavy water soluable, make sure you are using a 90/14 sharp, then what thread are you using. I find that the rayon does that, but if you use a polyester embroidery thread, it works better.

    Now you can use a 50wt cotton thread as well and put in both the top and bobbin. On occasion that happens to me, but since I have changed them up a bit and using the double water it works best.

    are you guys doing those on a normal machine or an embroidery machine? I saw some thread painting techniques using that water soluble stuff using a normal machine that I'm thinking about trying.

    My Bernina is a normal sewing machine, just has the embroidery module to go with it so I am using a programmed design. I have used the water soluable, be sure to get the heavier stuff so it holds up so much better and you get stiffer ornaments, to do thread painting and it works wonderfully. I have done dragon flies with it and angels.

    Thanks for the info! I appreciate it. Really.

    And now.. for the final reveal, of my other ornament. Sadly neither of my swap people have commented so I don't know who prefers which, so I'll end up boxing them up and picking randomly and putting one of their names on it I guess. I'll give it a few days to see if they comment.

    Both are beautiful. I do not mind which one you send me.

    We tend to have a scrappy tree. No theme, just ornaments that have been collected over the years.

    Very nice, I love the snowflakes and the ornaments, both colors.

    I am working on a few new ideas, now I need to find pipe cleaners!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    All the ornaments posted are great. I have two in the work. I just finished stitching little christmas trees on white felt and I need to figure a template for the bird shape. These ornaments are inspired from that dreadful pinterest site. Too many great ideas, not enough time!

    Well if it is me, I will take either as well.

    Now I got in the mail my first ornament. My girls just love it so I am going to have to get the pattern. I will photo and post tomorrow. It is from Michelle in Brandywine, WV.
