"Green Holly Mini-Ornament”
Early to mid-1990's
DMC #5 Perle Cotton, DMC Floss
Stitches & Threads chosen by Cyn.
The ornament is stitched entirely in Continental and Basketweave stitches using DMC #5 Perle cotton and DMC Floss.
The slightly padded ornament is about 2 ¼” tall by 2 ¼” wide. Red cording was added around the whole ornament and to form the hanging loop. The ornament was backed in red velvet.
I didn’t keep records for this project so I don’t know who the designer was, the cost of the canvas or the cost of the finishing.
I would have stitched this in the evening after the kids were in bed while watching TV or when the children were napping. With two little kids, I’m impressed that I was able to do any stitching! :-)
I have several more ornaments by the same designer which I’ll be sharing over the next several weeks.
Thank you for visiting with me for this week’s Monday Memory!
