In this case there really is Frost on the Pumpkin:
I wanted to show you my latest finished project. This is a door decoration for a friend of mine in assisted living. My mission in life is to add a bit of color to her really colorless life right now. I told her I would make her a new piece of art work for every changing season. Of course, your design is wonderful, and to give it my own touch, I glitterized it with holographic fabric paint. Sew, in actually, there is now frost on your pumpkins! Thanks again for everything you and Fred do. Until next time,
This is a great way to showcase a wall hanging on a door. You make one too. A strip of fabric the color of a branch, (twisted and tied), a real branch, an artificial branch – there are lots of options. Great job Laura.
Five years ago I stitched your Large Christmas Tree 2012 (BFC-1220) on a single sheet of balsa wood that was 18″ x 26″ and framed it to a completed size of 20″ x 27″ as a wall hanging.
This year I again used the design to make another wall hanging and during the five years it had grown and needed a 22″ x 30″ piece of balsa wood, framed out to a finished size of 24 1/4″ x 33″ and took on a trimming of lights.
I love your embroidery on Balsa wood – the trees really look great on it.
It was a lot of fun to get Velda’s email with all her projects. Here is her words: “I’ve been working on some tile scenes that are my favorite. I love your work! I will say Winter Peace took me 3 tries. I embroidered it twice. Finished it 3 times. It’s important to square everything as you go. Learned that the hard way. Velda”
They are all beautiful Velda – you did so much work on them!! 🙂
