A quick stitch
This little ornament certainly didn't take long to finish!
Since my last post, I finished filling in the zig-zags of the jacquard pattern with Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #002 in tent stitch. I then worked the background of the center circle in basketweave, using four plies of DMC floss #422.
To add a little depth, I worked the holly leaves in a satin stitch with dark green Petite Very Velvet. The berries were formed with French knots, using a full six plies of
DMC floss #321.
Now I have two ornaments ready for the finisher, so they'll be back in time to deck the red and gold tree for the Cape Cod Hospital Auxiliary's Holly Berry Bazaar!
