If you have been following my blog longer than 3 years you might remember that I sometimes make these beaded Christmas ornaments. They are from Cracker Box Kits and I made the first one in 1992. How do I know that?
Meticulous record keeping, of course!
Like many hobbies, this one has run it's course. I've made about 120 of them and I'm over it but I have 3 kits left. These kits are expensive so I will finish them.
That's why I've added them to my UFO list. They aren't quilts but they are unfinished projects that are hanging over my head and I'm determined to get them done this year.
This is how the instructions look. They are very detailed and there's a very detailed drawing of the finished ornament.
I also have the color photo from the catalog for reference. The one I'm working on now is called Discovery and I made some good progress this weekend.
I'm splitting my football watching activities between these and my applique. If all goes well I'll finish the applique and the 3 ornament kits before the Super Bowl.
Here are all of the completed ones stored. They store best hanging up. My college roommate tells me that if the FBI ever needs information to profile me she will just show them this closet.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
