Here I am....back to sharing the beautiful ornaments I received from the
Twelve Days of Christmas Ornament Swap
hosted by Deryn Mentock.
Day six belonged to the talented Crystal Neubauer.
Crystal is a talented mixed media artist who graced us each with a hand-painted
Three layers, painted on each side, with a middle layer of scalloped text.
Hand stitched and embellished with bits of paper, fabric, and a huge creamy pearl.
What I loved most was how she embellished one of the corners......
She stitched three french knots. I love french knots.
When I was about nine years old, I went over to the house of my grandmother (Rosa) for the day. On that day she taught me how to embroidery, which included how to make french knots!
They were, and still are, my favorite knot!
I will always think of you AND my grandmother when I hang your star on my tree each year.
