Who is “J”???

Just before our second child was born, I decided to make some ornaments that had all of our initials on them.  I had done the “F” for Frances, “M” for Michael (hubby), and the “B” for Brian (son).  I was working on the “J” while we were visiting with some friends and she asked how I could do the last initial before I knew if baby number 2 was a boy or girl.  My answer was easy…..James if it was a boy and Jenny if a girl

Early in 1981, we moved to Canberra, Australia so my husband could do a PhD at the Australian National University.  When I thought about the 20+ hours that we would be in transit, I knew that I needed something to work on, so I bought a packet of 6 embroidered ornaments to take with me.  I distinctly remember working on one of them during the trip and then finished them in the first few months that we lived there.

When I first made these and hung them on the door knobs, the frames would break apart and fall into three parts on the floor.  After several years of this, I finally got out the glue gun and secured the frames.  Now we enjoy them every year.
