Animated Photo!

I thought it would be fun to try and make an animated gif, to show you what these ornaments look from all angles.

It was hard to keep the kitty from messing around with the lights, and getting in the shots, but I think it worked out.  I tied the ornament from a cork screw so it would rotate, and hung it from the chandelier. I won't even tell you how long it took me to do, but pretty long!  Here it is!

Sometimes it's hard to explain what a product looks like, so I think photos work better.

Kitty finally won the battle and got his warm place to sleep.
Hope you have a great weekend, and wonderful Easter!
Take care,

Skipping Spring bring on Summertime!

Here's another ornament I've been working on.  A clothesline for summertime.  Like the laundry room ornament, this one is also from some old quilts.

 Here's the quilt I've been using.  It was already falling apart, so I don't feel so badly cutting it up.
I embroider all the pieces to the fabric.

Here it is after is soldered to the glass.  These take a lot of time to create, but I really enjoy making them.  You can check it out at MJ Ornaments.  Thanks for stopping by!
Take care,

Laundry Room

 Just finished a new ornament.  It's made from old quilts, embroidered, then soldered.  Fun to make!  I'm taking it with me to Glitterfest tomorrow.  Join me if you can!
Take care,
