The cross stitch embroidery for the Christmas mobile is completed. Here are the 16 wreaths, and the beads etc needed for completion. Next week I will start the cutting out and construction.
Christmas is nearly here!
Six more stems worked in TAST stitches.
Lower stem: Triangular Feather #52
Lower stem: Stem stitch #14
(please ignore the incorrect TAST number on the sampler)
However, I packed the yellow Buttonhole edge stitches very close and got another, in my opinion great, look. The accidental stitcher, or the inventive stitch designer?
Upper stem: Breton stitch #59
Lower stem: Knotted Buttonhole stitch #36
The two curved stems in purple are, on the left, Turkman stitch #86,
and on the right, Crested Chain #70
