Christmas Stitcher’s Tree

SDC10729   SDC10731

“Stitcher’s Tree” by Helga Mandl which appeared in the January issue of the  “Gift of Stitching”.            

Stitched on 28c Moss Jobelan using Carries Creation thread “Firefox” and added antique gold seed beads to give it that “Christmassy” touch! I backed it with the pretty holly fabric shown in the picture, made it up as a pillow and added red rick rack around the edge!
