Christmas Ornaments and Legacy Gifts

Bluebird Star Ornament

I enjoy doing embroidery - both for my shop (Harvest Moon by Hand) and for pleasure. It's not something that I did when I was a child or teenager; it's a skill I learned in recent years on my own.

When I make items from wool felt for my shop - like toys and Christmas ornaments - I always make an extra one or two for my daughters. My goal is that they have a collection of items that they can use on their own Christmas trees when they are adults and toys they can pass along to their own children one day.
