I have made ornaments for my family and friends each year since junior high school. The very first ornament, if I’m remembering correctly, was a clay heart in 1989. One of these days, I need to see if I can recall and share photos of each of the 28 ornaments from 28 years.
For now, here is this year’s ornament.
This simple tree goes with the semi-primitive runner and faux-mantle curtain I made. The tree is Osneburg over cotton batting with a pasteboard base and a felted wool trunk. The embroidery is very simple with a mix of primitive and whimsy.
