Yarn Stars. The Perfect Last Minute Ornament or Decoration.

Yarn stars 2015

Yarn Stars make beautiful, very last minute ornaments for holiday decorating - tree ornaments, garlands, gift tie-ons, hanging in windows. Diane at craftypod and I had a little yarn star making playtime with family and these were the results.

As you can see, even if you sort of lose your way and go a different direction, as long as you are consistent, the star should work out. Notice the cool open weave of the grey and red star above. I love it!

English Paper Piecing - Two Template Fractal Kaleidoscope Christmas Ornament!

EPP Christmas Kaleidoscope Ornament

EPP (English Paper Piecing), as anyone who has tried it already knows, is highly addictive! Certainly I was hooked after folding and basting my first hexie. And now that I have had the opportunity to play with pentagons, diamonds, triangles, apple cores, and tumblers - well lets just say I am even more addicted than ever before.
