A few weeks ago I was embroidering a Verano "Petals" motif, and this is why ...
I wanted to make a christmas ornament for the annual Yardage Design Christmas e-newsletter (which subscribers would have received yesterday). After embroidering the motif, I cut it into a circle and backed it with some contrast Liberty Print, including a matching loop to hang it from a tree, then loosely filled it with some stuffing so that it sort of ended up a puffy disc shape. I really like the scandinavian vibe of the finished product, as well as the red, white and blue colour combination.
I really enjoyed photographing this project in Retiro Park, much to the amusement of the passing Spaniards! It was fun trying to find the right tree, the right branch, with the right sort of light ...
... and then wishing I'd made a hundred of them to fill a whole tree ~ how excellent would that be?!
