An ornament from the other side of the world
















I received this ornament from Margaret Stedman from New Zealand.
It is so pretty and my photos just don't do it justice. It is stitched on fabric that has metallic threads woven through it. It is finished as a pin keep with pink and white pins on it and a beautiful bow on the top. Just too pretty for words or pictures. Thank you so much Margaret!
I have started (actually started, ripped out, started again, ripped out and started again) my first ornament. I am doing the blackwork ornie and the first thread I used didn't show up enough, so I am now using some Wildflowers in a really pretty purple color. Won't be as pretty as Margaret's but at least I am contributing finally.
Keep up the great work!
