Following on from last week's spate of Christmas creating, I have again spent this week working on Christmas creations for Domum Vindemia. Using the same vintage fabric as I've been using for the Christmas stockings, I have been putting together mini embroidery hoop ornaments. This is another idea I've had floating around in my head for quite some time; ever since I bought my first lot of teeny doilies, in fact.
As you can see, I have gone for a mix of "traditional" and not so traditional Christmas colours. And I have embellished each hoop with a teeny tiny vintage doily in a colour which matches the fabric.
I think I prefer the non-traditional Christmas colours, but I am really enjoying the creative process involved in making these little hoops. I'm not sure if that's because I love anything in embroidery hoops or because it's hard to resist anything mini or teeny.
For those of you who love my cupcake stands, I managed to find a Christmas-themed teaplate, so that has now been turned into a Christmas cupcake stand! After I brought this plate home, I discovered that the image on it was created by German artist, Monika Heller-Cole.
So what have you been creating this week? Have your creations been Christmas-oriented (gifts, decorations, etc)?
