CHRISTMAS WREATH EMBROIDERY

I can't believe its been nearly 2 months since my last blog.  I've still been stitching, but haven't taken any photos to blog about.

Back in October, I attending the FignBerry Soiree where I was lucky enough to meet Melissa Grant from One Day In May (my favorite designer).

One of the gift patterns was Melissa's Christmas Wreath.  Her designs are a little bit different, she often features a 3 dimensional effect and this one had holly leaves which gave that  look.



Rather than hang this little embroidery on a wall hanger, I thought I would do as Melissa did and get a lovely frame to display it in.





I know its a Christmas design, but its so nice, I think it can stay out all year round.  It looks so nice near my Paper Tole pictures, I can see it everytime I cook.

Its lovely and certainly not so Christmassy that you can't leave it out all the time...

Lovely to see your post Dawn! Great work on your embroidery... indeed the added dimension of the holly applique looks really good... what are you working on now?
