More Christmas WiP's

My handmade Christmas preparations continue in my closet sewing room...

Pin placed there to show tiny scale of design.  This is a 3" hoop.
That little bit of embroidery took me an hour!  AN HOUR!  I'm  soooooo S...L...O...W....  Didn't help that I ripped out what I had done once on the tree and once on the mug because it didn't look right so I re-did it.  And looking at it in the picture I think that mug has another chance to be ripped out again as I'm not so sure I like how the curve on the top is going.  Like I said, I am a slow embroidererererer person.  But it will get done, eventually!


I used one of the transfers from Aneela Hoey's "Little Stitches" embroidery book which makes it so easy to transfer onto the fabric and then start.  Finishing is another story altogether!  I still need to get on and finish this one too....


So many works in progress, so little time!  Linking to Freshly Pieced for WiP Wednesday!

I think the mug is sweet. What will you do with it when it's done?

Oh it is looking so sweet so far even if it is a bit time consuming!
