Embroidered Christmas Wreath

I have a great finish to report.  It's not a large piece, 25 x 25",  but certainly used up alot of hand stitching time.  The center piece was  pre-printed and intended for quilting.  I wanted to embroider it with color.  I started it a few years ago, then it went into the closet for awhile.

Whenever you have a clear out, you uncover forgotten projects.  I have rekindled my hand stitching phase and try to do it every evening.  I started by finishing the stitching on this piece.   Then it sat  again, waiting for an appropriate border.   I used Sulky 12 wt  thread and 3-strand embroidery floss.

 Then it sat  again, waiting for an appropriate border.  I put another border on it, it just didn't work.  I took that border off, and chose this one.  I like it.

I'm linking up with Kelly at My Quilt Infatuation.  Hop on over there to see what other delightful projects are being created.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
