Christmas Ornament


A while back, a friend of mine asked me if I would be interested in some scraps of silk. Of course I said, "Yes, please!"


This ornament was pieced with some of those scraps.


Most of my work is on cotton, so silk was a treat.


The winter lighting made this one hard to photograph well.


Now, I just need to cut out a back and sew it into a Christmas ornament. 

Today, I am joining the Monday Stitchery Link Party at Super Mom - No Cape! I do hope you will pop over to see the free embroidery pattern and to see the lovely work others have shared this week. If you have done any hand embroidery and have a blog, feel free to link up and join the fun!

Thank you for stopping by!

I love working with silk - especially dupioni. You have reminded me that I need to get busy on Christmas gifts or it's going to mean a lot of late nights!

It's a great ornament stitchery. I love the row of trees on the bottom and how everything else complements it. Thanks for sharing such great inspiration!
