Decorating the Tree
My newest design and the chart comes with the 8 small brass bells, the wood Christmas Tree button and the 4 large "antiqued" brass bells. I will even include the cotton twill hanger!
The finished size is 5" x 8". (99x73 stitches)
***Charted for Dmc but the first 100 charts sold will include my own hand dyed floss for free! I stitched this on my own Antique Champagne 32ct linen.The chart and goodies is $10.99 and you can order direct from me, firstname.lastname@example.org. Postage is extra. I will list this in my ebay store as well. **You need to order direct from me to get the free floss.
I have always done designs for me...and finished the way I like them. After I stitched and finished the hanging, I then strung a small bell on 2 strands of red floss and tacked it to the beak of the first bird. Then I "strung" the garland across the front of the tree and sewed on another bell with one stitch and continued all across the tree. It doesn't get any easier than that and I like the 3D effect.
The back of the hanging is envelope style. I love this closure because the linen doesn't even wrinkle when you turn it right side out. Then I sewed on a little wood Christmas tree button.
I just wanted to share my new design with you. Shall we give a couple away? Of course!! I knew you were waiting to get to the give-away!
