...and now sharing a new finish

This is my first ornament in the Prairie Schooler 12 Days Wreath SAL. I think it will be best to actually finish each ornament as I go so I don't have to work on all 12 at once. I deliberated today on 3 various finishing ideas and decided to go for a flat soft ornament. I am using some of my vintage lace for the edges.



I am going to work slowly on these since our SAL will run through December. I will take a break and start another one in about a week's time.

Hello Heidi,

Your ornament is gorgeous! I love the vintage lace you used for an edging. Looks so pretty! You are smart to finish them as you go. I still can't decide how I want to finish mine.

Feel better soon,
Nancy

This turned out beautifully Heidi! I love the way you finished it with the vintage lace trime. Will all of the ornaments have the same backing? I think it is just perfect.

Your first ornament looks wonderful. I really like the lace and the backing fabric. Are you going to do the rest with the same lace and backing? VERY pretty and you will be so pleased to see these hanging at Christmas!

Hoi Heidi,

Ik kan me helemaal aansluiten bij de vorige dames, jouw werk inspireert mij, want iedere keer als ik bij jou ben en je me weer iets nieuws laat zien, dan denk ik ohhhhhhh, dat wil ik ook. maar je weet, ik heb niet zoveel tijd, maar ik koester de creative deken die mij omwikkeld als ik bij je ben geweest volkomen, en probeer dan wat van die creatieve deken bij mij neer te leggen in de hoop dat de inspiratie niet zal wegebben.
