This weekend, Matthew finished his first embroidered picture. I hung it in a sunny spot next to the window in my craft room. It makes me smile :0)
Here are some old pics from last Christmas. Teddy and Matthew embroidered felt ornaments for family gifts. The motifs are based on some Sublime Stitching patterns, which I drew onto the felt.Inexpensive, simple, and loved by all recipients.This last one, Teddy made for Tommy, who's Alma Mater is the University of Virginia. He drew this himself before stitching it up.The felt wreaths in the background were made in an art lesson - one inch felt squares, punch a hole in the centre and thread onto wire. Add a ribbon for hanging and, voila, colourful tree ornament.

We've really been enjoying this stitching and I see a whole lot more in the future. Anyone else an embroiderer?
