Hello my dear stitching friends and a warm welcome to my new followers! The last of my Christmas packages finally arrived in the new year! This gift was sent to Lee in Brazil and included quite a few handmade gifts, as well as some Christmas labels, Christmas themed mini pegs, a souvenir teaspoon of South Africa and a Christmas card:
I stitched this Christmas tree for Lee - it is a segment from 'Vintage Christmas' by Country Cottage Needleworks and finished as a hanging pillow ornament (also shown in a previous post):
The design for this needle painted pinkeep is from Trish Burr's book Needle Painting Embroidery: Fresh Ideas for Beginners and is backed with the pictured fabric (also shown in a previous post):
This gorgeous beaded doily was made by my mom especially for Lee! The work is so delicate and I just love the 'pink-gold' colour of the beads! Thank you mom for making this gift for my friend!
Here is a pic of all the handmade gifts:
I also included a little gift for Larissa. She is a student at Lee's embroidery school and was kind enough to send me a gift last year. Larissa also received some handmade gifts, Christmas labels, Christmas themed mini pegs and a Christmas card:
This sweet little 'Prancer' is by JBW designs and is stitched on 28ct blue linen and finished as a hanging pillow ornament - such a cutie!
I also made these counting/marking pins and matching scissors fob for Larissa - I hope she likes them!
Well, that 'wraps up' the Christmas gifts for last year - I am always so relieved when all the packages arrive safely at their new homes :)
Enjoy the rest of the week and Happy Stitching!
