Stitching on this wool table mat today, making it up as I go along. I cut the backing so the tongues are already attached as you can see. Then I can stitch the gold wool backing I have to the entire piece. Not as difficult as stitching each tongue to the mat. The snowman still needs a scarf and need to add another tree and a little something hanging from the bird's beak. Need to add applique to the tongues, also. Another day of stitching for all that.
And then a close up of the vintage wool ornaments, not mittens as I said in another post. Just wool circles with vintage lace stitched to the wool and a vintage button added for additional embellishment.
