Last of the Christmas Finishes



Here's the last of the I-couldn't-show-you-at-the-time finishes. This is "Catrina's Christmas" by Keslyn. I stitched it for my friend and local needlework shopowner, Donna. Lots of fun stitches and intricate combinations. I love the geometry of it. The ribbon made of bead loops is a nice, but amazingly easy, touch.

When I showed this to my stitch group about half of them wanted to do it and asked me to teach it. So I came up with a spring colorway.

  3. Oh wow, wow, WOW - I just adore this one, the Christmas colours are just stunning! Great job, and it's absolutely no wonder they wanted to do a class for it, I'd feel the same way! :D

  4. Are these the colors used in the chart? I love the colors used but didn't know if you had changed them or not.

  5. Rebecca, I had to make a couple of substitutions, but they are as close to the original colors as I could make it given my available fibers.
