Shades of yellow...

snowflakes and christmas trees...



Since, I got the embroidery book I was looking forward start on a project. The two new stitches I learnt, I was easy ones; backstitched chain stitch and  fern stitch. I still need more practice to get even stitches and also must get use to working with the hoop. 


Later,I incorporated the piece and made runner for my night table. I used  much as possible yellows I possibly could find from my bag of remnants. Also, added a lamp with some lace. All is hand sewed.



The snowflakes are gift for a friend. The pattern....is from this blog.




Christmas tree pattern is from here; Crochet Geek.The pattern is both in video (left and right hand)and as well as has written instructions. The completed tree is about 2 inches in height. As for the decorative items, I sewed in what ever the little things I had in my craft box.



Thank you stopping by for a peek,

till next time,
