25 #2 Motif # 1 Christmas ball Sun

This is the Christmas ball Sun from this site:
It's done in Lizbeth Christmas Delight size 20

It's hard to photograph because it's clear and just rings and strings. I made a mistake by not having any knowledge of the size of the ornament(which the pattern calls for 2" diameter), yet I thought I could make it.....and I didn't do the center rings first(I will next time) because the pattern has 31 rings(total 62) in the center and my ornament only took 21 and I had the top and bottom rings done with 31 picots(still learning-I should have just set those aside and made them to coordinate, but I was lazy especially after the work those took to begin with). Either way, I think it's awesome!

Very pretty. I hope you show us a picture of your tree this Christmas with all the lovely ornaments you've made on it!

Being clear only adds to the look of the whole effect of how wonderful of a job you done! I like it. But I'm starting to get the hint that everyone is making clear...time to get ready for the holiday season coming up. I can't wait! I love those colors on the ball too.

Hi Sue,

I have to chuckle (in a good/positive way), because the first thing I thought of when I saw your posted pieces was: Christmas in July!

It's cute, and I'm sure it takes the edge off the summer heat!!

Take care,
