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.


  1. Congrats on your finish! I've never stitched the Mill Hill beaded ornament. They sound like fun!

  2. oooo I love the colors in your sampler, its just beautiful :D

  3. Congrats on your finish - it's beautiful!! And your ornament - so pretty - I can imagine how the beads sparkle when light hits them just so!
