Finished Baubles

 If you are hearing crickets from my blog,
it's not because I'm not busy working on things in my
Hidey Hole.

It's because what I'm working on can't be shown yet.

A baby quilt for my granddaughter is in production
and I don't want my daughter to see it yet.
(She reads my blog!)

What I can show you are some finished baubles.
Last week I showed the pieces I had made
from which to cut the baubles.
I also had some baubles that I had embellished.

Now I have completed baubles!

These are so much fun to make and are quite addicting!

The online class I am taking, taught by Isobel Moore, shows us how to sew the fronts
and backs together while adding beads.
She also teaches us a fun way to make the braids for the hangers
that is very unique and makes beautiful ribbon braids.

The more embellishments,
the better.  :)

I love the purple with the orange and pink.
(There are some stray threads that need to be cut!)

Using different ribbons and trims
adds so much to these fun ornaments.
I'm really getting to use a lot of the stitches
on my sewing machine, too.

The next set is ready for embellishing.
I LOVE this combination of silks,
trims and ribbons.

These are some of the fun stitches on my sewing machine.

Silver metalic rick rack... can't go wrong with that!

I love this mesh ribbon I found, too.

Let the fun continue!

Happy Quilting!

Oh wow!! ALL your baubles shout beauty, gorgeousness and fun. So many fabric and trim combinations. Love the blues married together with the silver and then there are the pink pretties. Pink and purple are so fabulous together. I can see you have had so much enjoyment with the making of your baubles. Just gorgeous, Ramona. Bring on Christmas!

I know Christmas is right around the corner when Ramona shows her latest creations. Makes me sad I just gave all my fancy trims to a Nashville charity shop the recycles crafting supplies.

Look at all that sparkly goodness, you are really using up a lot of trims with this project. I hadn't noticed the fun machine stitching as I was so busy looking at the beads, sequins and trims! Do you have a certain number of these you are making?

nice work what fun;))
Hugs from afar Julierose

Those are beautiful and what fun to play with all the stitches on your machine.
