I was looking at my archives, wondering what I’d been creating at Christmas in previous years when I came upon this from December 2011:
I’d had numerous problems with it from the start and once Christmas was over, it ended up languishing in a box. Until I found it in my archive that is. And now it looks like this:
Snowflakes on red velvet in a mixture of french knots, star stitches and woven spiders’ web stitch.
Snowflakes on green velvet ditto, surrounding an odd crocheted snowflake in vintage white perle.
A quick wreath finished with a bow created from…
…a circle of feather stitch in dark green silk thread with another in light green silk stitched directly over the top and dark red silk french knot berries.
It’s coming together, hopefully for a Christmas card, and I’m enjoying it again.
