– Add a touch of festive embroidery to your home this Christmas with this small table mat. Patchwork rows trimmed with threaded back-stitch border an embroidered pair of sweet wrens and banner bearing a simple Christmas wish.
– “Let There be Joy” explores the use of common embroidery stitches to create a variety of effects. Combine textures and threads for a variegated look. Fill circles without satin-stitch. Combine stitches for a pretty banner edge and add threaded backstitch to your patchwork… a simple stitch that gives the effect of small ric-rac.
