“Monday Memories – Green Holly Mini-Ornament” -- July 6, 2009

The “Green Holly Mini-Ornament” is another canvas that I stitched in the early to mid 1990’s.

"Green Holly Mini-Ornament”
Designer: Unknown
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!
