"Home for Christmas"
This design is from the 2005 Just Cross Stitch Ornament issue. It is stitched on a hand-dyed Lakeside Linen in 32-count over one linen thread. It's from a grab bag of ornament cuts, so I don't know the color name. I substituted threads I had on hand: Weeks Dye Works in Oak, Angel Hair, Brick and Cocoa. The Dye Is Cast fibers in Rosemary, Ivy League, and Dried Herbs. I stitched this on September 21st, 2005. I did the finishing on September 24th, 2005. It is finished into a flat ornament and is backed with a sage silk dupioni fabric. The ribbon on the edges is hand-dyed from The Thread Gatherer, and I used glass pearls on the edging.
