Christmas cards

This year I participated in the Christmas card swap at Fibre Fever again. Yesterday this beautiful Christmas tree arrived. It’s made by Marja.
And this is the card I made for Janny. The edge of the ornament is Hungarian braided chain stitch.
A detail from the pulled thread, it’s framed cross filling. I found this stitch in Pulled thread embroidery by Moyra McNeill.
I’ve used perle 8 on 20 count linen.

  2. I love the circle in a circle look of your pulled thread ornament.
    The Christmas tree cards is great, too. Isn't it spinning?
