No one is tired of Christmas yet right? Right? Even if you are, this is a non-traditional type Christmas design, or it is with the colours I chose. I think this was a free design that was offered years ago from an online cross stitch store:
I printed this out years ago and have had various ideas every time I look at it on how to stitch it. It's charted in red and green, but that is far too usual for this design. I changed it up for 5 different thread colours but kept the fabric white. I managed to get quite a bit done as well, 4 whole sections!
Patch Christmas Tree 1 by Angie Designer
stitched 1 over 1 on 28ct white Monaco with stash threads
unknown Dinky Dyes, Caron Waterlilies parrot, Dinky Dyes Down Under Blues and Jodyri Oz the Great and Powerful
There's only one colour missing, and that's an unknown Dinky Dyes purple that matches the purple in Oz the G&P. The lines are charted in DMC 310, but that seems a little dark. I was wondering about doing a red metallic or Etoile since I have most of the other rainbow colours in the design already. Or maybe just DMC 3799? If you have any suggestions, please let me know! I won't get back to this right away, but I probably will pick it up soon since another day of stitching should finish it off. Wait, that's starting to sound familiar somehow...
I hope you're all staying well and having a good day. Happy Stitching!
