A Colonial Christmas Ornament

Latest Finish:  17.04.08, A Colonial Christmas Ornament


Here is my latest ornament, "A Colonial Christmas Ornament" by Cherished Stitches from the 2007 JCS Ornament Issue. There are a few things about this piece that I should mention: First, instead of beads I chose to do French knots for the holly berries. Second, the date and the holly on the third panel are stitched over one... on 36 count! Third, I am especially proud of the cording that I made. After two or three years of making my own cording, I finally made a length that has uniform tension!
