I signed up for an ornament exchange on one of my Yahoo Groups (love those Yahoo Groups!), and found one to do in a little book I picked up a few months ago. This is done on a scrap of some soft 28-count beige linen -don't know what it's called - that I got in Idaho Falls. I followed the tutorial for making a pillow ornament, and even used the suggestion to use "invisible thread." My husband the fisherman obliged my request for some very light fishing line, and came up with 2-pound test line that was perfect for this job.
