I made this ornament for my mother’s 80th birthday. I embroidered the seams with tied herringbone stitch, feather stitch, up and down buttonhole stitch, French knots and feathered chain stitch. The beads came from old pieces of jewellery from my youngest daughter. She’s still in Cape Town and this way she kind of joined the party.

Last year I participated in a series of swaps for Teesha Moore inspired patches. This swap was cat themed. I used a scrap of cute cat fabric for my patch and decorated it with running stitch, stem stitch, French knots, a button and letter beads.
And this is the cute patch Jenny made for me. Se used a cat selvedge and pretty beads on it! Jenny wrote about the making of this patch here.

Not long after posting my spreads for the first day of Marit’s Top 2000 Party, my computer crashed. Of course I continued making my spreads. Now I have a new computer, so I can share them today in this post. Clicking the photos will bring you to the song at YouTube.

Ritva was the last birthday girl in the Fibre Fever group. I trapped a few sequins between organza and fabric. I used stacked herringbone stitch, chain stitch and crossed buttonhole stitch to secure them. The edge of the organza is secured with cross stitches.
