It's So Pretty...and it's Not Even Finished!

These Mill Hill ornaments are a lot of fun and the colors are fabulous. Of course, the glistening beads add a glamorous touch. I just got started, but I'm having a lot of fun and I didn't spill any beads yet! Knock on wood. I haven't decided what fabric to back them with, but fusible interfacing and an iron make this style of ornament a finishing breeze. That's good, because the ones requiring a sewing machine and twisted cord and stuffing...always get put off until the last minute. Like most of you, I'd rather stitch than finish.

Of course, I had to finish the Star Sampler before I could bring myself to start the beaded ornaments. Too many WIPs makes my brain hurt.
