When I think of that month, of course Christmas comes to mind. But that holiday is from only one our world's religions...and I wanted to reach for something universal. So my block expresses my feeling about the onset of deep winter, and what we all celebrate....
Hence, "Peace". I photographed my process as I went along. The 8" block's construction was unusual....
Kreinik metallic threads, then fused on the letters and appliqued them with the clear thread in a zig zag as well. I like using a Microtex Sharp needle for this step, sized 60/8, to keep the holes as small as possible.
