Christmas Wreath

This is a variation of a wreath design I did for a friend's wedding. I found the Rhodes hearts and stars so pretty in red, I couldn't resist doing the pattern in Christmas colors. In the picture, you can see I monogrammed my initials in the center of the wreath. I matted the work in red fabric to fit an 8x8 inch frame. It's pretty cute in purple, too. Have fun with it - and please visit me on Etsy - Rainburst Embroidery.

This is the original wreath I did for my friend's wedding. The colors were purple and black - and the bride's and groom's initials were ABC. I thought it was so cute, so I did this mini-sampler for them. It was matted with purple fabric borders, and framed in a black ornate frame.

She is a very talented musician, so I added little black musical notes throughout - the tips in black seed beads, with white pearl accents:

Here's the Christmas pattern. If you click on the image and print it, it should read pretty well:
