Counting Down to Christmas….

Hello my darling friends~ How has everyone’s week been? I have been busy on wrapping some projects up in the hopes of making the Christmas deadline. Although I’m still working on my last monthly stitch of the Little House Needlework’s ornaments, I finally started to finishing them up. I must say it was quite an impressive pile when I laid them all out on the table~~

Here are my first three ornament finishes using Vonna’s tutorial. I’ve always wanted to try it out when I first saw Vonna’s finish on her blog, and I must say I love how they turned out!!! It is really a easy way to put together an ornament. What a great way for some instant gratification!!!!!

  15. Great job. I tried for several hours to finish PS "Christmas Eve Deer" with felt. I used wave rotary cutters, then tried wavy scissors. Neither looked good at the corners. I ended up just finishing it on a matte board.
