    Well it has been a miserable and cold Sunday here in 'sunny' Spain, temperatures haven't managed to get above 0 deg C, so what does a girl do with herself inbetween projects and so close to xmas????

    Make these of course :D

    These are the 3" version finished size, point to point measures 2" :shock:
    Needless to say these are foundation pieced and a great way to use up all the little scraps of xmas fabrics I have accumulated from the cushions :D

    So a big thank you to ShellyQ, and here is a link to her patterns, there are several of different sizes, if anyone would like to download it :D

    Each of the little stars was fussy cut, easy as it was the first piece down, so you don't have to think about it going off to an angle when you flip, like the rest of the pieces

    Loretta, we have a tradition in our home, that wherever we roam, be in on holiday, business or whatever, we bring home a little keepsake for the christmas tree, so when we are dressing the tree every subsequent year, we are reminded by all the different ornaments of lovely memories, the little bear is musical and was bought in Edinburgh quite a few years ago, and still plays ' Auld Lang Syne' :D

    The 3" are a bit fiddly, but the larger ones are lovely too Terri, and there are 8" and 10" which make lovely round placemats or pot holders etc :D

    I just love these little ornaments. You did a fantastic job with them. I might even try a couple for our tree this year.

    Happy Holidays,
    Cheryl

    I love the ornament. I went to a craft show this summer and someone was making ornaments with styrofoam balls that had looked like little quilting squares. Has anyone made any of these before?
    P.S. I know this is probably the wrong place to talk about this. But this ornament reminded me of this summer.

    Jeanette, there was a post here not long ago about those xmas balls, if I had access to sstyrofoam balls I probably would have made some of those, they are really cute I think I may have bookmarked it, I will have a look for you :D

    Susan there are about 3" finished I think :D Although after all the fiddly sewing I would be reluctant to chance getting them stained :D
