New Christmas chart

Here is an ornament you can stitch with a knot within a knot. Also tucked within the knot is the word Noel. You could also personalize it if the name you want to write has four letters and they are not massive, like “w” and “m”. My friend Leon pointed out you don’t even have to change the letters to stitch his name. I already knew that since every year my children change around my NOEL stocking holders which hold four cross stitched stockings. Eventually they ran out of word combinations like LONE, LEON, and not yet invented words like OLEN and ENOL. So they cut out and taped on their own letters that looked so similar I did not realized they made their own words until after many guests had probably seen and politely avoided asking why my stocking holders said “FINK”.

Speaking of inventing new things, due to a bead spilling accident I discovered the very best surface for stringing beads–a piece of plastic canvas. The beads fall perfectly to skewer them and they don’t run away from the needle when they see it coming.

I’m an artist who loves to work in different media. My favorite to work in is thread and fabric doing counted cross stitch design.
