On Friday the quilt I've been working on was finished...really finished. The quilting was done and the quilt had been bound. This morning I was scanning Facebook when something piqued my interest. Christmas ornaments. Handmade Christmas ornaments ...... Okay, let's investigate. Oh....I like the picture. Free pattern.....I like the price. Download.....it looks easy. An hour later....look, ornament complete. Quick easy project.... Now, back to the UFOs.

Very nice! In the past two weeks I've started a wall hanging and a quilt. Of course costuming for the next theatre performance is about to ramp up as well. UFOs? What UFOs (if they are neatly tucked away in a box, they don't count, right?)

No. If you can't see them they can't possibly be counted.

Most of us have a lot more time for quick DIY projects than we realize. It's amazing how much time we waste, every day.

Wow that is totally awesome! What a cute ornament! Quick and easy for you maybe. I am sure if I attempted it, it would come out looking nothing like that. lol

It is actually a very easy craft to make. The instuctions were very clear and step by step with photos.

When it is finished in under an hour, it doesn't require much patience....now finishing a quilt requires patience,

My grade nine home ec teacher would probably tell you that I was the least likely student to sew another stitch....but lack of money and need led me to stretch outside my comfort zone and I was just as amazed as the next person at what I could accomplish.

@Morleyhunt I never even owned a sewing machine until a couple of years ago. And I'd so like to start to use it to make table runners and things like that, but I need to have the time to take a couple of courses in order to know how to read a pattern, and measure out fabric, cut it on the right grain-all of the stuff that I've forgotten since my home ec and my 4-H club years.

Very cute idea, in the day we made lots for our fair but we don't have the fair anymore so we are not making things.

Such a cool ornament. It looks complicated to make. Did you need to sew it using machine?

I used the sewing machine for the first step, but that could easily be complete by had as well.

With clear instructions you don't actually need much talent....just follow the step by step tutorial.

@Morleyhunt I like step by step instructions too--but that doesn't negate the talent

I will copy photos of quilts for potential projects. I can often figure out the pattern from just a photograph.

That looks super cute. I wish I could make something like that, but I am pretty much all thumbs. Except for latchook and paint by number my craft projects usually end up looking amateurish or worse.

It is much easier to make than it looks. Most of it is folding.

That is really cute! Could you share the link to the free pattern? I'm forever starting things, and not finishing them...oh wait, you already know that about me.
