Today I am showing the Christmas ornament that I made for an on-line ornament exchange. My partner said that she liked blue, green, and red in that order so I used those colors to make the ornament. I started with Deb Roberti of Starlight pattern. I reduced the sizes of all of the beads I used . Instead of superduos I used miniduos. I stitched 6 stars and joined them together. Then I stitched two rows attaching each star to the top. The bottom has twisted fringe finished with green and red drop beads. I truly enjoyed designing this ornament. I hope that my partner Candi of likes what I made for her. Thank you Lori Anderson of for organizing this ornament exchange. Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I take great pride in decorating my tree. It is a tradition in our family to make ornaments. We started it back in the early 1980's. I have made ornaments out of turned wood, buttons, seashells, embroidery, rocks,beads, and many other items. This year I am making several ornaments from fused glass.  I also collect ornaments and I have several from the 1930's.
