Jingle all the way

Last Christmas I got a pack of little tiny real bells, then couldn't think what to use them for, so they sprang to mind when I read that this week's challenge at Less is More is "Jingle all the way"

I did kick myself a bit though - the holes on the bells for threading the silver thread through are TINY, and I'm very short sighted and astigmatic. I ended up taking my specs off and holding each bell up to one eye with the other closed. Now you know why I seldom do any embroidery any more - threading a needle is nigh on impossible for me.

  1. I love how you've used the bells. I have a little box of them and needed some inspiration for using them. Another great card. xx

  4. Your bells and so sweet and what a fab card Jane. I have real trouble seeing closeup things these days, think I may have resorted to sticking the thread on the back with Glossy Accents, you are so patient!
    Thank you for joining us at Less is More this week
