Tracy Riffle of Hands To Work Designs

"My Christmas Pear"

This design is from the 2005 Just Cross Stitch Ornament issue.  It is stitched on a hand-dyed Lakeside Linen in 28-count.  It's from a grab bag of ornament cuts, so I don't know the color name.  I picked the fabric to be the color of DMC 833, so I didn't have to stitch the background.  The brown is Weeks Dye Works overdyed floss in Molasses.  The red is Copper Penny from The Dye Is Cast overdyed floss.  I stitched this on September 20th and did the finishing on September 23rd, 2005.  It's finished with wool felt and twisted cording, as well as little copper stars on the hanger.
