Ornament Finishing

I first want to thank you for all so much for the compliments on my sampler wall and my new blog look. I must admit I am pretty happy with the wall so far myself. Now, I recently got a chance to sit down the other day and do some ornament finishing. I had been wanting to try Vonna's flat wool felted ornament tutorial found here . It was so easy, though I need to work on my corner's a little more. Thanks Vonna for such a great tutorial.


Ho Ho Tired by Homespun Elegance and Star Topiary Ornament Hillside Samplings. The Ho Ho Tired is a new finish.




Joy Ornament by Erica Michaels and Holly Jolly by Lizzie Kate. The Holly Jolly was stitched for me by my mom!




Walt the Malt by Raise the Roof. This is a new finish too and finished finished as a pin keep ornament. It has a pretty pepper mint fabric on the back.




Merry Christmas Freebie from Nan at Threadwork Primitives. Freebie found
here.

I plan to stitch that one again for myself as it was given away in an ornament swap recently at my LNS, Well that's my update for now. It's pretty cool here in Florida today at 37 degree's. So I am making chicken and dumplings tonight, something nice and warm for the coolness. Thanks for stopping by!

Sharon,

I LOVE the ornaments! You did such a fabulous job with your finishing! I tried that finish of Vonna's last year on an ornament and loved it.

The ribbon choice for Walt the Malt was perfect! :-)
