I have been completely obsessed with embroidery lately, and have been trying out different stitches. Of course, the first thing I wanted to try is to embroider onto crochet fabric, which gave me an excuse to play with Scheepjes Catona. I decided to create something festive and the result are these charming Christmas baubles. The pattern for them with embroidery tutorial is free and available on my blog (link below). Have a go and please let me know what you think.
