at all times, and my workbasket is overflowing at the moment
with things I want to do.
This is my latest finish.........it is my own design
I drew, tinted, and then hand embroidered it to match one of my
The plate is from the Homer Laughlin China Co.
and the pattern is Gold Fleur De Lis/rim, Cavalier 1950s-60s
Amongst some of the things in the workbasket are these
wonderful stamped holiday sets that were given to me close to
30 years ago.
The Christmas "Doves and Holly" set contains 6 napkins and a large lovely
table runner. I am always in the mood to work on some kind of Christmas themed thing
at this time of year.......do you feel the same?
It is designed to work satin stitch in marked areas with different
color floss over the entire designs. I just do not want to take that long
to work all of these pieces and I do not want that kind of look.
So I tinted the matching colors from the floss list
and embroidered ,so far, one napkin like this.
I like this result much better.........what do you think?
I really hope to have this set finished before the Christmas season gets here.
How about you? Do you start working on Christmas decor or Christmas
gifts at this time of year? Do you get everything you hoped to
finished? I would love to hear!
