Embroidered christmas ornaments and quilted table runner

For those who would like to adopt Edward the Bat, step by and join my



Something new today. You don't think that I sit at home and don't do anything (read: sew like crazy) there...

I did some embroidered christmas ornaments. As I'm always a little bit late than the others, I will not have many of them (they are quite time consuming), but as an addition to some christmas gift/card they will do. I do not plan to hang them on the christmas tree really, cause my cats would eat them (not mentioning that I don't have a christmas tree at all... :P ).

To make them, I use my best felt with 60% of wool which is dyed with natural plant dyes. This felt is amazing. Love those rich earth colours - deep greens and blues, dirty orange and dark red... ^.^







I also did a table runner for a swap which I signed myself to quite a while ago. It will start it's trip to Australia on Saturday :) I hope my swap partner will be happy...




I didn't have a great idea for the back, so I just decided to keep it solid and dark - to make quilting more visible:

  4. I agree with everyone, your Christmas ornaments are stunningly beautiful! I love the table runner as well. I'm hoping to take my beginners quilting class in the new year and I can't wait to learn how to quilt!

  5. To ja po polsku napiszę:) przepiękny bieżnik - równiutki wszędzie, piękne kolory, niezłe pikowanki! Tył nie w moim typie (nie przepadam za brązami tego typu), ale nie ma się co przejmować, bo nikt tyłu nie ogląda:D wiem jak to jest z tyłami - ciężko coś dobrać, a dość często szkoda na tył ładnej tkaniny...

  7. bieżnik cudny jest - kolory takie świeże... Ale naprawdę, tak całkiem, to wsiąkłam jak zobaczyłam te serducha - pracochłonne z pewnością, ale prześliczne :)
