Our friend, coworker, and creator of many things stitched (who answers to the name of Vickie, and is the Assistant Editor of Knit N’ Style magazine), always has a fun display in the window of her workspace. Vickie is happy to share her cute egg garland design with the Create & Decorate blog readers! Leave a comment, if you like, for us to share with Vickie.
