Louise Henderson of Cherished Stitches

"Victorian Christmas Pin Bolster"

This design is from the 2005 Just Cross Stitch Ornament issue.  It is stitched on a hand-dyed Lakeside Linen in 28-count over two linen threads.  It's from a grab bag of ornament cuts, so I don't know the color name.  I actually had the threads called for in the design, so it's stitched as charted with the exception of my substitution for red mill hill beads instead of the red kreinik braid on the edging.  I stitched and finished this on September 23rd, 2005.  It's finished into a colster ornament with fabric covered buttons on the end and gold beads.
