I hope everyone will have a wonderful year with full of joy and happiness!
It was a few months ago, Cindy and I traded charts each other, but at then I've just sent A chart, but she has sent me wonderful stuffs include stitched gift...
So I felt really guilty and I promised to send presents to her for Christmas in return!
And this is what I've made for her for the last Christmas!
I've stitched this design twice before, one is mine and the other one has presented to my cousin.
I love this design, so I decided to stitch this again to Cindy, too.
Actually I wanted it to be framed, but it's fragile to send to foreign country, so I finished this as a flat fold easel this time! I trimmed around with gold twist code, and made tassel on the right top.
Actually it was the first time for me to make flat fold easel, so I felt relief when this was finished properly! :D I used dark green velvet for the around stitched piece, and it really suit well with gold code, I think!
This is the backing fabric which I used for this flat fold easel.
It's Christmassy and the colour of this fabric is really matches to the dark green velvet and the gold code.
Threads are over dyed threads and I think this is very beautiful.
This design is very small, but when you framed or make flat fold like this, it looks become quite gorgeous!
By the way, I've got an e-mail from Cindy and I've heard that she was so happy to receive what I've sent to her!
So it also made me very happy!!
