I am delighted to share some lovely EMBROIDERY today by Susan. The inspiration for Noel came from a Christmas card Susan received. I thought this was worth noting as she mentions Christmas cards a great source for embroidery patterns – who knew!!! She modified the design slightly and proceeded with stitching.
She has used a selection of my threads to stitch Noel. Colour #7 for the word Noel woven with a little sparkle of Kreinik size 8 braid. She used several greens including Colour #18 for the leaves. She used some silk perle for the seed pods. It turned out beautifully. Ginkgo is a simple design stitched on green wool with variegated floss. As Susan says, sometimes the simplest design is the more effective. Thanks so much for sharing these Susan. Perhaps Susan has inspired you to check out some Christmas cards for various embroidery designs 🙂
