More Ornament Progress...


Hi Angel!

I loved seeing your ornaments in progress! It looks like we're moving forward at about the same speed. With my mom coming back through town to celebrate her birthday a few days ago, and then Ben's 4th birthday celebration yesterday, it's been a crazy week. My Little Birds Garland is close to done though.

After stuffing and finishing one bird, I decided to do the rest assembly line-style. I'm doing the blanket stitch around them all, then will stuff them all, then will finish them all and tie them into a garland. I didn't know how to do a blanket stitch before this project and am so glad I learned! I love this look.

I'm hoping to have a finished garland to show before July is over... Fingers crossed.

Meanwhile, I've picked my colors for the Felt Flora and Merry Little Ornaments. I LOVE these designs by Cathy Ziegele so much and can't wait to try my hand at the beading.

The color schemes revolve around the aqua/blue seed beads I bought at the fabric store.

Aqua is one of my favorite colors lately, and one of the main colors in my existing Christmas ornaments. I thought it would be a fun way to tie these in. I think these ornaments would also make great little Christmas gifts!

How's everybody doing with their ornaments? I can't wait to see them. Please post in our Christmas in July Flickr pool when you have some to show! And don't forget to enter the giveaway by Alewives Fabrics if you haven't yet!!
