I was a bit taken aback by how popular the last wreath was, so here’s another. This is made in the same way. The background is a sample of furnishing linen which I have had for ages but not wanted to cut up. The circle is done in chain stitch with three strands of embroidery cotton. This one has appliquéd berries and thorn stitch between the leaves.
This one is quite so easy to read. The previous one had a lighter background:
I like the second one because it looks a bit vintage, as if the person who made it in the 19C didn’t quite know how it was going to fade and become less distinct.
These are so easy to do, though. Brilliant for beginners because the appliqué leaves are a really simple shape.
