I've been playing with Debra's Christmas wallhanging design in Photoshop.
This is a digital design.
I may have overdone the number of snowflakes, but you could always put some larger doilies in the four corners and graduate the sizes towards the middle.
For the Nordic theme I thought of putting rows of basic felt shape silhouettes that have been stitched in the folke style of just buttonhole edges or even just running stitch as on the reindeer here.
Debra, you could even turn this into a 24-day Christmas calendar if you make the shapes reversible with a number on a plain side, to turn one over each day to see the stitched side.
(Sorry, I enjoy creating work for others, haha)
Edited to add this pic.
Large doilies and lacy trims could be at the bottom, graduating to smaller snowflakes towards the top.
Gives the effect of falling snow. ~~ I think ~~
I'll do another digital manipulation later to show the larger doilies in the centre.
Next edit follows.......
A few hearts scattered amongst the larger doilies in the centre.
I did this manipulation before I saw Debra's new pic with the large centre snowflake.
I like having the wide area of red separating the large doilies from the small ones. I think it gives the eye a resting place.
