Merry & Bright

I'm so happy to finally show you my latest design.  This one was truly fun to create
and I really loved mixing in a bit of wool on this.

"Merry & Bright"

The model was stitched one over two linen strands on 32ct Dirty Ewe linen by Dames of the Needle with Classic Colorworks Belle Soie Red Fox.  I love the variation the silk gives and it's so wonderful to stitch with.  The wool trees were a breeze to stitch on and a template is provided with the pattern.  I purchased the wool from The Merry Hooker.  The color is called Pepperberry and matched the Red Fox silk perfectly.
I did a simple trim around the edge with a matching red yarn.
Stitch Count 107 x 108.
Finally, I want to thank my dear friend Cindy Ruckman Cabrey for stitching the model.  Every stitch is always beautiful.

This will be available in shops very soon and will also listed in my Etsy shop for your convenience. 

Thank you very much my fellow stitchers for all your continued support.
Happy weekend and happy stitching.

This is a beautiful design, Nan. Of course you can never go wrong when you bring wool and stitching together ! ;)
