Here are some Christmas things I have made in the past.
This is a wall hanging about 36" square. It is made on a dupoini silk background with fans in each corner. The fans are heavily embellished with stitching and charms as well as added lace and ribbons. The center is a silk print. It is a little girl dressed for winter, holding her muff. Her muff, fur collar and hat are all embellished with white fuzzy thread for depth. I'm sorry the picture is not clearer. A matching silk ruffle edges the whole wall hanging. This always comes out at Christmas time and is hung prominently on the living room wall.
This long wall hanging matches the square one above. It also is used at Christmas time as it is made with 3 large pockets which hold the Christmas cards received during the season from our friends. Each of the 3 pockets is heavily embellished all over with extra fringe and beads across the top of each pocket. Silk prints are spaced above each pocket and of course are embellished with outlining and more. We enjoy this decoration near the tree and our fireplace in the living room.
