Some clear examples of embroidery stitches from previous post.
Heart ornament is put together by layering three different heart sizes.
On the white background I've placed slightly smaller heart of the same white color. I embroidered it around with contrast red stitch using whipstitches.
After that I've placed smaller red heart in the center and this time I used matching color whipstitches.
This is the result:
4) Satin stitch
One of the classics.
Here is how I embroidered ring carrier pillow with Satin stitch for my friends wedding.

Goal of this post is to help and educate.
In time I will probably update this post with new photos and descriptions.
1) Blanket stitch, Buttonhole stitch and Whipstitch
All three stitches can be used for similar purposes. I use Whipstitch when layering motifs and stitching motif to the background.
Here is a photo of all 3 in layering example.

I've been neglecting my blog. Everything about my blogging moved to my Instagram .
Today post is just because I want to show more photos together in one place.
Here are two color versions of the new sleigh design.
First the newest one. Background color is spearmint blue. Snowflakes are stitched with sparkling white ( something I discovered this season). Rest is more or less as on the all Sleigh ornaments. With attention to put some silver details on the sleigh itself and on the gifts.
Here are few more photos of those sleigh and of the Santa.
Second one I'll show you today is on the White background with silver embroidered snowflakes. This one was made back in January.
That's it for today. I need to work on my photos since ornaments look so much better in person than on the photos.

this color boost of Mint and Blue with a touch of silver details
It's Blue Christmas baby 😊
As I showed you in previous post...
I wanted to create a lovely ornament with Christmas gifts.
It was my sons idea and he said that it is a must.
First attempt was a stack of gifts.
All though it didn't came out bad, it looked a bit like a birthday cake.
So I needed a new idea.
And it was Christmas Sleigh full of gifts.
I really took time for this one and it came out great.
I wouldn't be surprised if you already came across the photo of this blue sleigh while searching on Pinterest for stuff relating to Christmas. It' quite viral.
Next step was completing a set of 6.
To the obvious trio ( Snowman, Polar Bear and Penguin)
and Santa (or Father Frost in this case) with his Sleigh
I needed one more.
And this grey animal was on my to-do-list for a while. Now it got its turn.
Here it is Donkey Ornament with hint of Nativity scene.
And finally complete Blue-Mint-Silver set

Today I'll show you Mint and Pink collection that I created 6 weeks ago.
Center of this collection are 6 big ornaments
4 of them are designs from last year but with new colors ( penguin, polar bear, snowman and raccoon).
Totally new are gingerbread house and gingerbread man ornaments.
Gingerbread man wanted a female companion...
So I later added also a gingerbread girl ornament
And because my customers have so many good ideas what else to add...
Here are few additional ornaments to go with the set
Bunny and Father Christmas himself.
When creating a new set I experiment more or less with new designs and color combinations.
Some designs stay just as test one.
Like this stack of gifts in pink and mint.
I hope you enjoyed this Pink Christmas Boost.
