    Love reading about new books and resources connected to fiber arts. I’m learning how to see on a machine but also weave on looms. Having the visuals posted makes it easier to become excited and more focused on starting a project on my own.

    These are very cute ornaments. They remind me of the activities we shared with our children when they were growing up. All of the ornaments we had on the tree were handmade except, of course, the strings of light. Unfortunately, in 1999 we lost all of that to the tornadoes in Oklahoma City 🙁

  253. VIckiT in IL says:

    What fun ornaments and Oh my, those Brookies look just awesome. YUM.

    I don’t know who might be able to help, but twice I have tried to get to the tree ornaments that appear to be made from a tree napkin tutorial I saw years ago. Both times my computer is warning me, and blocking me saying it’s a malicious website. I’m sure it’s not but there must be something there and it could be an ad with coding that’s got something being read by Windows as bad so it blocked access. If that owner of that site can be told to check I’d appreciate it. I would myself but without being able to get there at all I can’t locate her email address sadly.

    Thank you so much for this list and the yummy recipes.

  254. Jane says:

    I want to make them all (especially the brookie cookies – I’ve made brookie, but never as a cookie).

    The red bird is especially lovely. Jane in the UK
