Beaded Ornaments and a Giveaway!

Hi Friends! I thought I'd show you some of the mini beaded snowflakes I made for gifts this year...

I enjoy making these throughout the day and I've made several more and I thought I'd have a year-end little giveaway of THREE of your choice!
Here's the first set...

And a second set...

The giveaway is open to Sunday, January 3, 2010 at midnight central time zone.
Just leave a comment and I'll draw a name and post the winner on Monday and also contact you, so be sure there's a way for me to get hold of you!
You tell me which three you'd like to have, and I'll send them right out!
These would be pretty all winter long hanging in your window!


  1. Oh, they ARE pretty! And, yes, they would be nice all winter! So sweet of you to offer them.

    PLEASE tell me which model H Viking sewing machine you have...that is where I have landed and can't figure out which model.

  2. Ohhhh, they are so pretty. If I was lucky enough to win, either set would be fine..I love them both. How sweet you are to offer them..I have my fingers crossed..they are just beautiful.

  3. Yes, they are lovely, and either set would be great. Count me in!

  5. Your beaded snowflakes are so pretty-I bet they really sparkle when the sunlight shines on them! I love the colors in the 2nd Set best.

  6. ooohhh, I didn't miss the deadline :) If my name isn't drawn, i'd still love to know how you made them! There are a few bead shops in Winchester, and I bet I could turn it into a fun project with the boys.

  7. I’ve used a lot of different materials over the years. When I was heavily into woodworking, my ornaments were often made of wood, like this scroll-sawed dove made of thin maple. This pattern came from a magazine article. I remember there were several other patterns in the article, but this one ornament is all I ever made.
