1 Xmas item


Well yesterday was 1 Xmas item day but i'm posting a day late because of Anzac Day. I actually have 3 items.
I decided against making them into heart hangers instead i appliqued them to a glittery background fabric & then stapled them to canvas. I also finished this
Again decide against a pincushion, appliqued it to a background fabric & put on a canvas. I forgot to take a photo yesterday & quickly took one this morning little realising i was shadowing the picture.

Happy Stitching,

What a clever way to finish embroidery, Jeanette! I'm tired of pillows and ornaments. This is a great idea that I will file it away for future reference. Good job!

Just beautiful Jeanette, what a great idea with the canvas. Cheers Pat.

What a clever mounting/display idea. Ok if I "borrow" it sometime? Seriously though, your stitchery is wonderful and I think the ric rac is a nice touch.

Hi Jeanette, Love your stitcheries. I did the bunny as a pin cushion. Your hearts are adorable. By canvas. do you mean a painters canvas? If so I may steal your idea. How do you get them onto the canvas.? Oh yes RR blocks away since a week now. Enjoy.D
