Christmas Cards Already

Early Christmas Card

Recently I received my first Christmas Card - from a friend in USA - a wonderful craftswoman who makes the most amazing things ... more about her later ...

This card was all her own work ...

Hand designed and printed

Enclosed with the card were these two beautiful  hand made tree decorations ...

I asked for an explanation as to how they were made and this is what she said:-

"I forgot to tell you how I made those Christmas ornaments I sent to you. They were sewn on my embroidery machine. You use water soluable backing in your embroidery hoop, stitch out the design, then when it's done you soak it in water for an hour or so, and presto -- a lace ornament. Sometimes they work out well, and sometimes not so much. But they are pretty."

Sounds pretty difficult to me ... anyway thank you so much K.
