I’ve taken pictures of the ornaments I made for my mother and grandmother. I made the name ‘EVA’ from the Margaret Sherry alphabet.
The Oct/Nov programme for my guild was to stitch and finish a counted canvas ornament. I didn’t finish mine in time for our Nov meeting, but paid attention to how it was done and was able to finish mine at home the following week.
Jean provided us with the outline and we used her suggestions for filling stitches, or found some stitches on our own. I used a Leaf stitch on the right and a Tweed stitch on the left, and the center is long arm cross stitch done in Japan Thread. The three major colours are white and burgundy (both perle cotton) and gold (rainbow gallery petite treasure braid).
