To keep her dress from looking too sombre, I broke up the dark green expanse with a framed Scotch stitch using DMC floss #500 and 504. The shamrock she's holding was satin-stitched with DMC floss #700.
Her market basket was worked in a woven stitch with DMC #5 perle cotton #434. I added her curls with French knots using the dark brown Medici wool. Then I popped in the date at the bottom of her dress with Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #002, so my friend will remember her summer trip to Ireland--and me--this Christmas!
