Not So Secret Santa

Last Saturday the BrisStyle girls swapped Christmas Presents. We knew a little bit about 'our person', favourite colours, fave animals and those sorts of details.

I drew Margie from Marlier Designs. Her favourite colours were pink, turquoise and aqua. Her favourite animal was a butterfly.

This has been stitched on silk with my hand dyed silk threads, stitching is totally lots of tiny backstitch. It's something I've wanted to try for ages. I decided that these sorts of online swaps will give me an excuse to experiment. I was really happy with the finished effect of the stitching. It was good fun.
