Joy is finished and ready to go in the box top.  I added another row of Entice around the outside of the medallion.  Then the outside edge is stitched with Silk Lame Braid.  The rays are Nordic Gold in silver.  Then Mill Hill beads in between the diamond shapes on the edge and one in the center!

Joy to the World!

I have started another one of the box tops from Jean HIlton's Christmas Ornaments.  Joy to the World is from book two and was all done in red and white floss.  I have switched it to silver and white.  So far I have used Silk Lame Braid, Kreinik ribbon, and Entice.
