Oh Come All Ye Faithful!!
The snow is white cotton torn into strips and stitched down in the centre of each piece, the evening sky is a section from a piece of silk that was indigo tied and dyed. The carol singers is a section taken from an old Christmas card, I re-drew them and added them in pieces with Bondaweb before blanket stitching around them. Finally a semblance of snow was added with several rows of patterning off my Janome Horizon.
Lovely subject although I did stall at one stage as I too was going to do snow flakes but decided to rethink it!
Thank you Wil for your Christmas wishes, a very Happy Christmas to one and all, all the very best for the festive season
