Now that Christmas is behind us and all surprises are revealed, I can show what I made to give away this year. This first photo shows the five ornaments I embroidered for our grandchildren. These are all free-standing lace, meaning that there isn’t any actual fabric; all of the colors are achieved with thread alone. Each of the ornaments has over 26,000 stitches!
Finally, I embroidered a pair of frameable pieces for each daughter and her partner. These were supposed to be simple little projects, but the cost of custom matting and odd-sized frames made them rather a joke on me! LOL! Our elder daughter and her husband are educators, so these were for them.
Our younger daughter and her partner are very interested in wine, so these pieces seemed appropriate for them.
