Description


As a kid my Mom would make new ornaments for our Christmas tree every year. Some that we helped with others that she Knitted, Crochet, Cross stitched, or other form of craft. When we grew up and got married Mom gave us a box of different ornaments that were on the tree when we were young to start or family ornament collection. I figured to do the same. Additionally I may add an ornament to our christmas cards this year but haven't decided yet. Mom still gives us all a new ornament every year to add to our tree. I made 30 some of these sending some for an Ornament swap that I was in leaving about 15 to put in my christmas box.

Siffstitch Thanks the embroidery machine did all the work

I have an embroidery machine too, but have not tried FSL yet. Those are lovely.

Beautiful! Your Mom's tradition is a lovely one. What did you use as a stabilizer? Speattle, if you get the right stabilizer, these are very easy.

Speattle Oh you should try these. Super easy I some times have to slow my machine down so that they look nice and one of those I'm actually not happy with the back, but you can do a bunch in one hooping making it really nice.

Chrissybugs I'm not sure whether I used Floriani or Jenny Haskins. Those are the 2 that my 2 local dealers carry. They are a fabric like stabilizer. I'm still testing stabilizers to see if they are my favorites. What do you use? Some of moms traditions only followed me lol. Only one sister inlaw seems to be crafty. But I really enjoy it.
