I wanted to write a book years ago on based on 100 dozen handmade Christmas ornaments. I wanted to design and made the patterns and then the original ornaments. I started doing it and like so many things in my life, I stopped to create something else and never got back to it. I have collected and friends and students have given me ornaments throughout the years. When I was getting Christmas out I started going through one of the 6 big boxes of ornaments that I don’t already have on trees. It was fun to remember where I got them, who gave the to me,  or when I made them. There is just something about homemade ornaments that makes me smile.nedlep[oint ornsNeedlepoint 2woodneedlestyrofaom
