Peace on Earth

A quick assemblage I put together before packing up for the day ~ very bold, but it helped me ascertain my theme for any christmas cards I create this year ~ Peace on Earth
More Victoriana with layers of net and embroidery detail ~ I tried to be more sensitive with colour than I usually am ~ I have a tendency to be loud and proud which isn't to many people's taste!
I really enjoyed embroidering these little beads around this Victorian Scene, they remind me of sleigh~bells.

As I was doing it I found myself thinking about how many Christmas traditions actually originate from this time and were initially uniquely middle~class celebrations.

"Twinkle, Twinkle"

I began playing with some of the christmas material Carolyn gave me yesterday and I had a lot of fun making some simple patches ~

Carolyn's Giveaway

I was very touched today when Carolyn hand~delivered the textile art heart I won on her recent giveaway ~ she gave me a beautiful handstitched purple heart with a little silver bead on it and it is beautiful! I will post a picture of it tomorrow.

She also gave me a huge bundle of red and purple materials which I can't wait to look through ~ but I am saving that pleasure until tomorrow as it's nearly school run time and some things you shouldn't rush.

Thank you Carolyn xx
