Luna

Luna's model has been finished thanks to the countless hours of stitching my mom did on her. I placed the final bead on the design in the wee hours of this morning. Luna is now off to the Nashville Needlework Market to be displayed in Dinky Dyes booth, one of my wholesale distributors.

Vintage Merry and Bright

Bright colours, inspired by the non traditional vintage Christmas cards from decades ago, are used in this cross stitch pattern.

Also used in this design are some sparkly beads and Kreinik #4 braid to add some shimmer to the design. I highly recommend using an even weave linen for this cross stitch pattern as there are a good amount of quarter stitches in the Christmas baubles.
