Each Christmas I pull out these hand stitched decorations and hang them in the archways of my living room. This year as I put them away I felt a surge of happy stitching memories. I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity of taking lessons from Lynn Payette on a weekly basis or 5 or 6 years.
It was an open class room. At times we were working on one of Lynn's designs or we were working on a project or our own. Each year Lynn would design a Christmas decoration or two and the entire class would participate in stitching it.
