Ornament Finishing

I thought it was about time I sat down and had an ornament finishing session over the weekend. I decided to go with a very simple finish and followed Vonna's excellent tutorial using what is fastly becoming one of my favourite sewing accessories - a rotary pinking cutter!

A few hours later this was the result!

For Hannah's bluebird ornament I chose a different finish and I was very happy with how it turned out....

So now I'm completely up to date with my ornament finishing -there's nine completed ornaments in my basket ready to be given out later in the year. I need to get stitching again :)
Thanks for stopping by!
