This ornament is from Just Cross-Stitch Ornament issue 2001. It's designed by Jeanette Rees of Jemini Designs. The original pattern called for floss blended with Kreinik Blending filament stitched on 14 count Aida. I don't stitch on Aida (hate it) so I traced a circle onto 18 count mono canvas then used fabric markers to draw on the arcs and filled in the red and green. I then used Kreinik 1/16" ribbon to stitch the colors and two strands of #4 braid for the white. I am trying to use up stash and the two strands of #4 tangled terribly. Never again! It does look good though.
I finished the ornament with a flat back with silk dupioni and padded front. Love it!
