Creative Color Challenge...

I just wanted to quickly share what I made for Louise Gale's
Creative Color Challenge Ornament Exchange.
I wasn't sure about taking on another task when I'm
already so busy but I couldn't resist.
I embroidered the ornaments on muslin, then
tea dyed them with cinnamon tea.
Then I used my handy glue gun to adhere them to
a mini canvas. Finally I added a lovely red ribbon around the border
with room left at the top to tie them around the branches of the
Christmas tree.
These ornaments will be shipped off tomorrow to Texas, Scotland, and New Jersey.
It felt good to sit and quietly stitch. I've had so much
focus on painting that I've neglected my needle n thread.
I'm thankful to the lovely Louise for this fun opportunity. If you haven't
heard, Louise is having an amazing online class called
Big Dreams, small wonders. You can find out more
