Since a couple of year, Martine, a French embroidery teacher, offers an advent calendar to embroider via her website and instagram. Usually she publishes the main pattern on her website a couple of days before the start of December and then publishes one motif every day in December on Instagram as well as the explanation on how to embroider the motif.
I had participated 2 years ago but not last year.
This year the pattern was a floral wreath and each day a new flower was added. I had chosen two metallic threads and 5 plain cotton threads to give the wreath some unity.
I really enjoyed embroidering a flower each day, I found it very relaxing and I have learned new embroidery technics.
The finished wreath:
