Jim's Yahoo group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DodecagonSeriesOrnaments/

Comments: This is another one of the Dodecagon Series ornaments that I have truly enjoyed stitching and with this one I took more photographs than I normally did with the previous ones.

Jim gives very good visuals in his instructions for all stitches to be performed, but if you are like me and want to know more about those particular stitches and much much more, there are a few Jean Hilton's books that I would highly recommend. Two of them are listed below with links where they can be purchased. You can also see other books and designs from Jean Hilton on this website. Stitches from the Heart is also a great shop to do business with.

(Mistake stitch which you can read more about in Jean Hilton's Needlepoint Stitches book, pages 10 and 11)

(A little bit more done on the center section - just love those colors)

(Lots of Jessicas in Jim Wurth's designs)
