New Christmas Ornaments

I make multiple Christmas ornaments each year and just finished those for 2010.  Several years ago I made many images of a Christmas tree in a silk screen workshop by Marit Kucera and just put away the fabric squares in my studio when I came home.  This year I rediscovered them in my studio and designed ornaments for our children and grandchildren to hang on their trees.  


I made 13 total, several with a sparkly fabric overlayer.  After stitching together the fabric with the silk screen, batting, and backing, the trees were turned and machine quilted with gold metallic thread (YLI Kaleidoscope).  I love the sparkle!




So precious! I have so much to catch up on! Hope you are well, Shirley!

Love your ornaments and your sketch of them!

Cool project!

Wonderful ornaments! They are truly special. I have never had success using the metallic threads. I end up so frustrated with the clogging and breakage I throw them all away. You've done really well with it.

Wonderful idea, so creative!

Beautiful ornaments! and I'm sure very treasured by all who receive!

lovely Christmas drawing and the way the your creativity takes your ideas from one thing to another/

Beautiful ornaments and more special because they were made by hand. I love the sparkle, too. :)

Wow, you are so clever, Shirley. These are beautiful.
