Ornamentificaton ... Part Deux

Well with a frenzy of ornament stitching, comes another day-long session of ornamentification. Unfortunately this time, not done with friends! Oh it was no where near as fun without my ornament buddy Ann! Of course Hunter did help for a little bit before taking a nap in my fabric basket!

Here's the fabrics I picked to go on the back of each ornament.

Here a the fruits of my day's labour (yes it really did take all day!).


Damask A

Damask B
Damask C
Damask D

Candy Cane Dragonlet

Ivy of Holly & Ivy

Boule De Noel

Red Noel



And finally, here's this year's batch of ornaments!

All I can say is WOW!!! They all look wonderful, you certainly were busy. What did you use to shape them so neatly? Are they on the finishing forms? Or, did you use form core cut to shape?
