October Holiday
Topic: Paper Embroidery

I'm not talkin' about Halloween, here. I'm just working ahead on my Christmas cards again and these are the two that I completed for October's 'two Christmas cards per month' stitching challenge.

First up is a winter scene that I've done several times before. I usually do it on blue with white thread so it looks like a snow scene. This time I decided on dark blue background and light blue thread so it looks like a night scene. I mounted it on a medium blue and gave it a couple of lines of peel-off sticker border in silver.


This tree is supposed to be stitched with round and bugle beads but I was in an airport when I stitched it and had no beads with me. So I just used purple and red metallic threads and stitched in a broken line method to make color changes. It was incomplete looking so I added the broken outline as well. When I got home I mounted it on purple cardstock and then wanted to add red and purple rhinestone stickers. Since I had none I colored clear rhinestones with Copic markers and let them dry before sticking.


Aren't all patterns only a 'suggestion'?
