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.
