This design is from the 2001 Just Cross-Stitch Ornament Magazine. It is stitched on 40-count Linen in Pearled Barley from Lakeside Linens. The outer four-sided stitch and satin stitching is stitched in one strand of DMC cotton floss in white. The wrapped bars and dove's eyes are stitched in DMC Cordonnet Thread #100 in white. This ornament was stitched in July 2006. It took a LONG time. I would estimate around ten hours. I love it though! A challenging piece due to the small linen count. I did the finishing in 2009 with brown silk dupioni and very velvet twisted cording.
