It has been raining all night and all day today. It's not a heavy rain but comes down lightly and steadily. It's so dreamy to look at. I'm so glad that we finally got some rain. We've been in a drought for a number of years now. The rain came just the right time, after I started cold season planting in the garden, starting with some peas and garlic. The seeds sprouted and started to grow. Nothing gives me more thrill than seeing sprouted seedlings. It's a joy to see them poking through the soil and start growing. I'll show some pictures when they grow a little bigger.
Last summer, I made some quilted postcards which you can see in this post. That was my first Foundation Paper Piecing (FPP) experience which I learned from Leila Gardunia here. Leila also has a free download of scrappy triangle foundation at this site. I enjoyed making the postcards so I decided to adapt these scrappy triangle foundations into Christmas ornaments. And here they are...
These ornaments finished at about 4 inches. I will make several different sizes; from 4-6 inches. I decided not to use traditional colors of Christmas on all of them but there will be some red and green for sure. It will be a modern Christmas tree with modern ornaments this year. 😊
I'm so glad to finally have projects like these for my scraps which are multiplying fast. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
Hi Margo, those are lovely ornaments!ReplyDelete
