Stitch Maynia 2021 Start #26

Hello, hello! Last night I decided to torture myself a little. I had this scrap of 18ct beige aida that I thought would look really cool with this Caron Snow colour I picked up when my LNS was closing. I found a few colours I thought I could use, and this one seemed like it might work for a dragon, trees, etc. I decided to break it out for a tree this time. This is technically an Assisi tree freebie pattern that I printed out long ago without any identifiers. I thought to make it quicker, I'd stitch the part that usually would not be stitched. 

Here's where I got to:

Assisi tree stitched in opposite by unknown designer
stitched 1 over 1 on 18ct beige Aida
with Caron Snow 06 - Cedar Green 

Caron Snow is definitely better than Kreinik and DMC, although I'm not sure it's as easy as PTB to stitch with. Also, I really think this should be 14ct, because I was dragging the thread through the holes. This is probably 1/3 done though, so it's not a long stitch, except for how long it takes to stitch with metallics. Knowing this now, I think I'd choose Etoile next time. I still might use Etoile for the star, even though it would be less sparkly than the tree. 

I can't remember if tomorrow will be yet another Christmas design or if I'm into a different season. I think there are still a few left in my expanding file. Plus there's some more of the Circus Stitches patterns from the sale that I might work into these starts. Only a few more days left to the month!

Happy Stitching!

  1. Nice start! I've often thought of stitching an Assisi backwards, too.

    1. It certainly is faster for this design, there was a ton of background! Thank you.
