Fleur de Mardi Gras

This ornament, Fleur de Mardi Gras by Jude Designs, is the second piece of 3 projects finished from the 2016 ANG Seminar in New Orleans. The charm was a gift from ANG.

The French Knot was the host shop at Seminar and I picked up this canvas and the threads there. They had a nice variety of canvases as I recall.

And, the finisher that Karen at Nimble Needle in NJ uses did such a nice job! I really like a small simple bow so it doesn’t overpower the ornament.

This is very pretty and does give you the “Mardi Gras” feel. And I, like you. don’t like the “fru fru” bows that many finishers add to ornaments. It’s all just too much frippery.

Thanks Brenda. Yeah, excessive bows are distracting.
