Every stitch tells a story


I want to show you some Christmas ornaments that I was given to finish.  Aren’t they beautiful?!

I really love Christmas ornaments, and think of them as short little stories.

Sometimes  a customer discovers a particular designer, and just has to collect every ornament this designer has ever done.  (I’ve done this myself on more than one occasion.)

Or maybe buys an ornament as a gift for a special person, or to commemorate an important occasion.

Now some ornaments are deceptively simple to stitch.

Others have a lot going on in that little space that makes up the stitching area of a traditional-sized ornament.

Either way, often the stitching tells a story — particularly if a customer chooses some new stitches,  or experiments with some fancy new type of thread.

Usually I don’t have to guess what stories might be behind the ornaments I send out to have finished:  my customers will give me the full scoop!

By the way, the ones you see here are gifts for relatives and friends.

Aren’t they lucky?
