Christmas Ornies Day I

The Christmas Ornies for this year have progressed.


So far I have:

1. Printed a heap of angel prints on silk. But I ended up liking this one best, so I used it for all three.

2. Drew a four inch square on the foundation, turned it over and repeated it on the other side

3. Did a quick and simple machine piecing around the prints.

4. Turned over, tacked/basted around the four inch line, turned over and trimmed back, leaving a small seam allowance.

5. Added bits of lace and trimming coming in from the side. Some is rather nice wired gold gift-wrap ribbon, minus the wire. It will make nice dragonfly wings some time later.

5. Hooped the two I have six inch hoops for. I need another hoop.

6. Using gold Madeira machine thread, started sewing down anything that moves (ie mainly the trimming). That’s the one at top right.

And, that is it until dark. I am off to garden.

The production line idea is a good one... will have to remember that one for next year. I do enjoy reading your blog everyday. Thanks!

Dear Linda,
I just love your Christmas ornaments. They are so beautifully done. Your use of colour is just spot on. Congratulations. Have a wonderful Christmas. You would be the one to have some stitching going whilst the turkey is cooking. God love you. Joan from Lakes Entrance.

Just beautiful Linda,
Love how you do a few of them at a time
One good thing about leaving it to the last minute, it does make one get a move on and do several things at once

Linda, these are gorgeous. I will have to try these. I even have the same angel printed off on canvas, but would love to do some with each of the children's pics in the center.
