An Amazing Advent Calendar

Luna Twearly finished her a m a z i n g Advent Panel!!! 
Such a lot of work...
Now this was one, long term project, but that's not how it started. Way back in August Luna purchased the panel and a few threads with the intention of stitching it all together during her summer holiday in France. She usually has very creative thoughts while making... and this was no exception. She returned from France with it unfinished... Since august she has continually worked on the detail. Millions of tiny French Knots on every leaf. Metallic thread embellishment on every snowflake and...

Each of the 24 pockets has been layered with wadding and backing fabric before they too were  embellished and quilted with metallic thread and more French Knots! The background panel was quilted some before the pockets were stitched in place so that made it a bit easier... Luna has left her Advent Calendar with me in my shop so, if you would like to see it, it's hanging there for your visit. You will be amazed just how many French Knots there are!!! Toot toot toot-etty-toot Luna Twearly... It's a fabulous and finished, new Family Heirloom for the future.
