Holiday Ornaments: Series 3
Laura says, "Each ornament design is 5" x 5" on 18 ct canvas (and 3.5" x 3.5" on 24 ct. Congress Cloth). I've stitched my models on the Santa Fe Sage green canvas, but really you can stitch them on any color (you'll stitch solidly on the canvas, so none of the canvas shows). As you can see in the photo, I stitched all four designs on one piece of canvas, but you can certainly stitch each one on a separate piece of canvas, or even in a vertical row, for a bellpull effect. I also consider these cuties as "mix and match" designs, because you can switch out the colors of each border to suit your favorite look. To show you how they look, I did two of the pieces in red pearl and red metallic borders, but if you prefer, you can stitch ALL four ornaments with a red and white border, for a matching look. You can also switch out the inner patterns around the tree and stocking to red & white, green & white, or red & green - you choose! And it sure would be fun to mix two packages with two ornaments in ONE design! As you can tell, there's a bunch of ways to play with this design, and the stitches are all easy ones, so they really are fun to stitch up."
