Look what the mail man brought to me today!

This box just squeezed in the mail box and what a wonderful surprise. Lisette made this sparkling red Christmas Ball for the HOE Christmas Ornament Exchange. Along with a beautiful handmade Christmas Card this ball safely made the journey from The Netherlands to New Zealand - and well in time to go on the Christmas Tree.
The floss is an iridescent DMC and there are beads on every medallion and on all the seams. The Fabric is an even weave red which is a really pretty Christmas Red and not so tomato red as this poor photo shows.
What a lot of work went into this. Many many thanks Lisette.


  1. Wow that's a breautiful ornament for your tree!

  2. That's a great ornament. It must have taken Lisette some effort to stitch that one together.
