Amazon Books

Here’s a handy index for all the articles relating to the hand embroidered Christmas ornament series that finished this week.

The index will be listed under Tips & Techniques in the main menu on Needle ‘n Thread, under Hand Embroidery Lessons & Step-by-Step Projects, where you can find a list of most of the embroidery projects and lessons we’ve gone through together over the years.

2014 Embroidered Christmas Ornament

I had so much fun making this ornament, that it isn’t impossible I might do something similar again next year. Oh, not the same ornament, of course – but some kind of ornament.

Wishing you a restful, quiet, relaxing Christmas Eve – safe travels if you’re traveling, and good cheer if you’re staying home!
