May Ornament

Another one done for the 2008 Christmas Ornament Challenge!

"Quiet Night" by Erica Michaels Designs
JCS 2007 Ornament Issue


Stitched on Polstitches "Welsh Mist" (Dragon Shades) 28 count Jazlyn with DMC threads. Subbed the called for Rainbow Splendor with two strands of Dinky Dyes' "Icicle" stranded cotton (I'm pretty sure this was from a collaboration pack) and one strand of Petite Treasure Braid.

This ornament is quite large as it should have been stitched on a 40 count linen but the Welsh Mist was the perfect colour and it was already in my stash :) The construction side of things was a little challenging but I think it turned out reasonably okay :)

Thanks for stopping by!

You said that you lace your flat finishes. Do you glue the braid and stuff on after that? I'm very new to ornament finishing!
