To Thee Hope

I finished my Brightneedle ornament today- still need to "finish" it- but thought I'd post anyway. I didn't use the recommended DMC but used overdyeds instead- if anyone is interested this is what I used:

DMC 169- GAST Barn Grey
           318-GAST Bankers Grey
           372-SSS Green Tea Ice Cream
           407-SSS Mocha
           452-WDW Carnation
            524-GAST Green Apple (I didn't actually use this- the two letters that were to be stitched in this color I stitched in a different color-SSS Spice Drop-by accident and just left them alone. )
            927-GAST Evergreen
            3013-WDW Ivy
            3046-WDW Beige
            3053-SSS Spice Drop
            3774-SSS White Peach
            3863-GAST Cidermill brown

I stitched it on BCG Textiles linen, 32 ct.  This was from the 2006 JCS Ornament Issue,  stitched  one strand of floss over one fabric thread .  Now off to work on a Christmas gift...

It's lovely Tracey! I love the thread changes you used, I'm going to make a note of them. This ornament is one of those ones that every time I see it stitched it reminds me that it's one I want to do.
