Christmas Ornament Round 3 is done and I'm done with ornaments until next season! I didn't get them all finished before Christmas but they were done a few days afterwards.
I found the kit at Goodwill last year and started it last year. But, I lost interest and working with the metallic threads annoyed me. This year I was determined to finish them.
It is a kit from 1979/1980 by Erica Wilson.
The birds are stitched on both sides and look so much better in real life than they did in the picture. It's amazing how simple felt can be elevated to stylish with the right trimmings.
I really liked the way these birds turned out. They are not being put away with the rest of the Christmas decorations. I'm going to enjoy looking at them all year long.
I'm also ready to do more felt embroidery. But, I think I'll use normal floss instead the metallic floss. The kit was generous and I still have about half the spool left. I also kept all of the felt scraps. It's really nice felt.
Thank You Erica Wilson (October 8, 1928 – December 13, 2011), for the great birds and for all that you have done for embroidery.
