I enjoy making gifts for my family and friends, and when the recipient appreciates the thought and work I have put into making them something by hand, I am encouraged to make their next gift extra special.
My Mom opens a handmade gift almost every Christmas. This year she opened a hand embroidered family tree stump with wool applique bark and leaves.
However, this photo above was exactly how she received it. I wasn’t sure how to display it. Should it need to be quilted? How about a border? What colour binding? Maybe it should be framed. When I am stumped I ask my Mom for her opinion, I couldn’t do this until she opened it on Christmas.
We are both on the look out for the perfect fabric to use for a border, then we’ll need the perfect frame.
