The other day I posted about the colors that are used for Christmas ornaments and asked what everyone prefers. I received some wonderful comments on this and it got me thinking about designing a Christmas ornament pattern that you could possible do in just about any color combination.....I think I came up with it. Several ladies posted about using light pink and silver, light blue and silver.....well this is my version of those combinations. In the picture, you will see all the fibers I used in the stitching of this ornament. I hope you will stitch this in the colors you love and please don't forget to send me a picture so that I can share with the others.
I stitched mine on the palest of grey 28ct. Jobelan and I used Anchor Pearl Cotton for the kloster blocks. All the other stitching was done in Anchor floss and Rainbow Gallery Treasure Braid. The little snowflakes I bought at my local LNS, Needle Orts, which you can find in my list of "places I love to visit". Of course you don't really need to use these if you don't wish, I just saw them and fell in love.
The twisted braid around the outside was made using 1 skein of the pink and 1 skein of the green Anchor floss. I then used straight pins with a bead on it, dipped in a tiny amount of glue to anchor the floss to the ornament.
You can find the pattern here and if you do stitch this and post the finished ornament on your blog, would you please make a link to this posting and give me credit for the designing. I would greatly appreciate it.
I am hoping I receive alot of pictures showing all different kinds of color combinations....please don't disappoint me. Thanks and have fun with it.
Blessings as always,
