A collection of Colonial Knots have been stitched to form a curly beard for this Father Christmas, who is flying across the top of this project. A mixture of applique techniques have been used, along with hand embroidery. A decorative edging can just been seen in the background, adding to the prettiness of this festive design by Lynette Anderson Designs...
...colonial knots were also used as the star pattern on the jumper of this rather plump snowman, who is putting the finishing touches to trimming the Christmas tree with some candles. I hope he doesn't stand too close to the candles - it would be awful if he melted and ended up as a puddle!
