Deck the trees
All the Christmas ornaments have been delivered so now I can show you what I made this year. I've been doing a lot of hand stitching in recent months, especially of text, and it seemed like a good idea to embroider people's names on their ornaments. This is the third year in a row that I've done full names, but don't get too complacent, people, we may go back to initials next year.
I found an old linen tablecloth that made a great substrate for embroidery, and had a bunch of green wool felt scraps still sitting on my worktable after I trimmed the edges of my Quilt National piece.
