Embroidered Poinsettia

One of the things I have been trying to do with my website redesign is update the descriptions and instructions for my cards.  Last night I was looking at my Embroidered Eight Point Star and trying to remember how I stitched it well enough to write instructions.  I decided it would be easiest just to make another card and while I was at it, it might as well be a Christmas card.

I chose the colors based on a beautiful variegated poinsettia my sister and I bought for our mother last year, then I found the perfect background paper in the Christmas Stack from DCWV.

The whole thing took about 2 hours start to finish even with my lousy eyesight.  If you’d like to try one of your own, you can find the pattern and instructions here:

Happy Stitching!
