Christmas is fast upon us but there is still time to make a special Santa, stocking or ornament and to begin a tradition of making a beautiful addition to your decorations each year.

My Woodland Santa is dressed in a coat of natural felted wool, hand dyed in a parchment colour and embroidered with berries and leaves in silk chenille. It is very satisfying to work with the pure textures of wool and silk combined. The wool background is very easy to stitch into with the chenille and the berries look good enough to pick.
