Too Early for Christmas? Nah...


Our local sewing/quilt/craft group gets together in our Community Center each week. From time to time, one of use will teach a special project. This time Penny brought styrofoam eggs, little squares of assorted fabrics, tiny pins, and lots of glitzy trims. We used them to make these Prairie Point Pine Cone ornaments. While most of us used Christmas fabrics and trims, a few completed the project using harvest-color fabrics, or pretty florals. Penny was a great instructor, and everyone agreed they'd be making more of these ornaments. They'll be great gifts. That's Penny below, holding some samples she'd made, followed by some hands at work.

I've seen these before but never had opportunity to learn how to make them. Yours look very nice, good color combinations.
