Merry Christmas embroidered

To say I was obsessed with this embroidered wall-hanging growing up would be an understatement. I kept it in my room year round to marvel at the playful type, patterns, and texture.

My nephews have been in care of this for years, and I drove out specifically to take a snapshot for holiday cards. And even though it has an element of tacky I didn’t remember, I still consider these stitched letters a significant influence in my design aesthetic.
