Weddings, babies, Christmas and friends~

Four of the most wonderful things in the world!

Since $ was tight this past Christmas, my siblings and our significant others decided to keep the gift giving simple and exhange ornaments.

Since my brother and his wife were still technically "newly weds", and my sister and her beau are getting married this summer I decided to make quilted ornaments in their wedding colors.

Jake got married in his Air Force dress blues. He and his bride Mandi chose navy and light blue for their colors. It was gorgeous! You can see more about their wedding here.

They were all about the *bling* so I wanted to be sure to add some rhinestones to their ornies~

I had a hard time finding a fancy matching trim for these tho~

My sister Jonna and husband to be Richie have chosen orange and pink for their colors. I had better luck finding supplies for theirs! Jonna wants to use this pretty irredescent orange/pink ribbon in the wedding, so I had to include that. Then I found some awesome beaded trim to match~

Since by brother is a new daddy, I wanted to make a special ornament for him and my niece Jaidan~

Hey, he's wearing the same shirt as in the ornie photo, hehe...

I also made a quilted candy cane ornament for my SIL Joyce, and since Jaidan's room is done in turtles I found a little turtle and jazzed it up to add to her "my first Christmas" ornie collection.
...and here they all are together...
Did you notice the extra one? Recognize them?
Yup~ none other than our sweet blogging friend Rue and hubby Rich!

Hey Nikki,
Oh my goodness...I would have gotten over here sooner...if I'd realized that you posted...but your post didn't update in my blog list and then today I noticed that your picture had said it was 5 days old...I don't know why it sometimes doesn't update posts. It's done that a couple of times with several people.
The ornaments that you made are beautiful! What a great idea for Christmas gifts for your family and friends....very special, extra pretty because you made them. Hope you have a beautiful day!
A big hug,

Nikki! I saw these quilted ornies in a magazine and couldn't figure out how they were made. They are beautiful! How fun that you did one for for Rue and Rich! Just like everything else! You are over the top on this one. :)

Very creative and oh, so pretty. Such pretty ornaments. I made cushions once in that folded star pattern and they were really fun to create. My favorite, tho, are the photo ornaments. Delightful!
