Our 2011 Ornaments

As promised, I have completed our family's 2011 ornaments I posted about here
They're not as festive as my inspiration, but I like them.  I started out with green thread but then switched to red and think that looks much better.  A thicker ribbon would have been easier to sew in, but I made what I had work.  What do you think?
Since I didn't have the time or inclination to sort through my 10 boxes of fabric to find usable scraps, I went to JoAnn's and looked at the fat quarters that were on sale for 99-cents and found four coordinating patterns that I think work well together.  With my 15% off coupon I got enough fabric to make several dozen more.  Ha ha!
Maybe I'll decorate the trees later with buttons or something, but for now I'm just happy to have them done before we pack away the rest of the Christmas decorations.  =)
