This cactus is decorated with cheerful multi-coloured fairy lights – not just for Christmas – lovely at any time of the year at all! Indeed this design would make a lovely Valentine stitchery too, perhaps with red or pink fairy lights rather than the vibrant multi-coloured ones in this version.
This hoop uses just a few stitches – back stitch, French knots and satin stitch – all the cactus “spines” are French knots so it’s a good way to practise this stitch. The cactus and pot are appliqued and then the embroidery is worked over the top.
Shown mounted in 7” hoop.
