This ornament is adapted from the one designed by Forget Me Not In Stitches in the Just Cross Stitch 2004 Christmas edition.
I stitched on 32 count natural Belfast linen with DMC threads. To make the white stand out more I used whipped back stitch only for that colour. On reflection I should have thought more about the interlaced effect....but it is what it is :-)
I work for a large Government Department. Outside work I enjoy embroidery and stitch mainly traditional pieces of counted work always in Linen and generally with DMC or silks. My other love is reading and I visit the local library nearly every week. My elderly mother lives with me. She is increasingly deaf and quite blind and in this blog is known affectionately as the DBEM.
