Christmas Cheer

Back in July Blossom and I began some Christmas embroideries, glad to have some time on our side before the flurry of last minute Christmas decoration that we had experienced in years previous.

I finished the large Christmas Sack in October, but not much has been done since. Yesterday, while listening with Blossom to "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" I remembered four little embroideries I'd done (from a Homespun issue a year or two back), but not decided how to use. The orginal design had used them as tree ornaments with little scalloped bottoms, but in keeping with the red and white theme Blossom and I have decided on for 2008 I edged them with red spot fabric, added red and gold seed beads to the embroideries, then plaited red and white fabrics as a hanging cord. I added some left over rusty bells from the Christmas Sack and it was completed!

The sentiments shared in these little embroideries are what I pray your family and ours are blessed with this Christmas, the best and most desired gifts from Christ.
Now to move on to the next project, and another audio book....

God bless!

Love it! Something I should try! I have a thin space for something to hang that something like that would look great! 8-)
Happy stitchings!
