The ornament for 2014 from my Grandma Shantz was this beautiful angel.
My Grandma passed away in 2010, but she made ornaments ahead for her grandkids - for 5 years. I have an ornament from her from every year I've been alive, from '79 until now. Next Christmas will be the last one we open from her.
Hardanger (har-dang-er, not har-danger). I have no idea how it's done, but I know it takes much more time than normal embroidery. I have a table runner she made me, and I forget the amount of man hours involved in making it, but it took a crazy amount of time! (700 hours is sticking out in my mind, though that may not be accurate - might have been that said it would cost $700 if she charged min wage for her time? I can't remember)
