I finished this beautiful wool applique project just in time for Christmas! It is called O Holy Night, by Under the Garden Moon. I haven't appliqued with wool in a long time, and could not wait to do this one.
Once you have the pieces cut out, it comes together rather quickly. I happened to have the right floss colors, too, so no last minute shopping trips. The frame will be ordered on Wednesday, but at least I will be able to display it today and tomorrow.
Here are some close up shots:
The vines and the staff were embroidered using the outline stitch, the berries were made using french knots, and the applique pieces were stitched using slip stitches. There are no embellishments, as it is supposed to look very primitive.
This project kept me focused on the true meaning of Christmas... and I hope all of you remember it, too!
