I really shouldn't have, but I did open the kit and start. Some of those little things are so cute! I would like to add a little suggestion for all of you. I have made some round Christmas ornaments. I found a few kits that are beaded and are placed over a clear glass ornament. The first ones I did were actually Easter Eggs for an Easter Tree. It was suggested to get plastic eggs to put in these, but the ones to fill don't always stay closed and others are very hard to find. Well, one thing led to another and I started other ornaments with designs I had. I found that styrofoam balls work just great! Just before I finish the top of the round ornament I shove in the ball. It is easy to move the stitches around to get them even & very little blocking is required. They also don't get smashed like the ones with the fiber fill in them. These balls come in a wide variety of sizes, are light weight, & not very expensive. Just thought I should share.
That's a good idea. I made some sample ornaments for a class at one of the shops I was working at and put glass balls in them. One customer dropped one, and it broke inside. She then proceded to pick it up and SQUEEZE IT! ------- (Ok, Lady, here's your sign..........)
