I love Christmastime! Aside from the true meaning of Christmas, for me it's also about sparkly things... A table set with polished silverwear and crytal stemwear; a tree dressed in gold and silver tinsel; the sparkling smiles of friends and family.
With embroidery, it's when I allow myself to go crazy with metallic threads. Gold and silver metallic thread can change the most modest of designs into a glorious display for Christmas.
Thinking about Christmas reminds me of Christmas Plum Pudding. For as long as I can remember, my Grandmother had a tradition of putting 5 pennies into her pudding mixture. As a child, it was always a treat to find a penny hiding in the pudding - adults would not be so amused, lest they lose a tooth.
In memory of my Grandmother, Thora Millicent, here is a Christmas Plum Pudding machine embroidery applique design pattern. It looks almost edible, doesn't it? It's perfect for adding a festive touch to your placemats, napkins...all your Christmas table linen! A finishing touch to a Christmas stocking or apron! Christmassy cute on a t-shirt or on a babies bid!
