Noel was designed by Emie Bishop, Cross N Patch.
Silent Night, a small sampler ornament was designed for the Cheekwood Chapter of the Embroiders Guild by Beverly Hamer in 1994 for the Trees of Christmas exhibit. Star stitch, four sided stitch, Herringbone, double stitch, crown stitch, crossed scotch cushion, eyelet, half Rhodes, whipped satin, mosaic, Smyrna cross, and Palestrina knots are some of the stitches used in this piece. This was a good learning piece.
Each year Cheekwood Botanical Gardens hosts the Trees of Christmas. There is usually a theme for decorating the trees and local business and organizations are asked to decorate a tree. Yes, I am biased, the EGA tree is always one of my favorites--all those hand made ornaments, hours of work, skilled hands working needle and thread.
