Merry Christmas!!

I've been doing some stitching on Wedding Piece #2 in between preparations for Christmas and doing my knee exercises, although not much progress has been made.
a bit of colour was added to the monogram with whipping and/or couching the existing stitches with single ply embroidery floss

'pearl' bead centers were added to many of the Josephine Knot flowers
 Some letters are being stitched with lots more work to come
 Our tree is trimmed as we await the arrival of family and friends.

May you enjoy this Festive Season surrounded by those you love.
Wishing you Joy and Peace, Much Love,
And a New Year filled with Promise.
Stay warm and safe.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

"God Bless us, everyone!"

Thanks for visiting.

Hugs from Suz
