My first ornies ever!

I've completed my first two ornaments ever! I'm going to try to use stuff from my stash for all my ornies this year and experiment with the finishing. I'm not a quilter or patchworker so these little efforts were a major challenge to my limited abilities. All they need now are a couple of those wire and dowel hangers and they'll be ready to use.

I'm really pleased to be a part of this SAL (also a first ever) and have been impressed with the beautiful work so far, it's been very inspiring to have a go myself.
The designs are worked on 28ct Summer Khaki with DMC threads and the designs are freebies from Crescent Colours.
