This little stitchery wall hanging was made a while ago, in secret, for my sister’s birthday. As she has now been given it I can play show and tell.
Do you like the wiggly twig it’s hung on? I have a contorted beech in my garden and its branches grow like this – well actually this one is one of the tree’s straighter branches.
I was going to embroider the berries on but my embroidery skills are distinctly rusty (if they were ever there at all actually!) so I did turn edge applique which was a bit tricky as they are tiny but easier than embroidering them – in my humble opinion!
I love everything about this simple stitchery, from the pretty design to the colours – it was hard to let it go!
The stitchery is called Tweet Home and is designed by Kathy Schmitz, she has kindly made it available for us to use just here.
Until next time,
