Merry Christmas

I got inspired by Mary Corbet's small Christmas tree embroideries and decided to use some stitches from my collection to make two cards.
The fir tree on the blue card is made up of Beaded Alternating Feather (TAST #155).
The starry tree on the red card has a trunk of Corded Coral (SSS #46) and branches of Thorn Stitch (SSS #41).

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and Boxing Day.

Thank you for your kind words. It is always nice to use the stitches I have learned in a proper project.

I am pleased when I can find the use for some of the stitches I have learned.

Your Christmas trees are absolutely fabulous! You do such beautiful work!

There are still a few days of this year left and much work to be done before the 31st.

Thank you. I take much inspiration from you. Using the stitches we have learned from TAST e.g. in real projects is fun, isn't it.

There may be many pretty/beautiful paper cards but a handmade one wins out every time. Your's are extra special with your Sunday School Stitches. Love both.

a Belated Happy Christmas to you and yours!

If the card is simple it can be tossed out with the paper cards. If you make a master piece card the recipient might feel obliged to keep it. So I try to make mine 'disposable'

It is soon time to say HAPPY NEW YEAR! Enjoy what is left of 2017.

I saw that you have been inspired by Mary Corbet, too. The trees were quick and fun to make.
I wish you a very creative and happy new year.
