Stitched by You: Amanda Miller

Connecticut stitcher, Amanda Miller, recently finished these beautiful Christmas ornaments and has kindly shared her stitching patterns for each design below. You can find each of these canvas designs in my shop. They are linked at the bottom of the post.

You can follow Amanda on Instagram @bluehydrangeastitcher to see all of her delightful stitching escapades as well as her most time-consuming project, a 1765 Connecticut colonial she and her husband are renovating together.
