Christmas Rose & Ribbon Humbug
COUNTED CROSS STITCH CHART BY FABY REILLY DESIGNS
An extremely elegant ornament featuring a delicate Christmas rose. The heart of the flower is exquisitely stitched in a combination of cross stitch, back stitch and seed beads. The motif is repeated with a variation on the other side of the humbug and a golden ribbon winds its way round, finishing in a pretty bow.
Hang your ornament on your Christmas tree or, even better, somewhere in the house for everyone to admire. Maybe in from of a mirror?
The design is a humbug shape, which means it's simply stitched in a single rectangular band, with each sides subsequently closed 2 by two. A detailed tutorial comes with the cross stitch chart.
Faby Reilly's charts, while combining cross stitch, backstitch and seed beads are extra clear and stitcher friendly. You'll enjoy every stitch you make!
This humbug is part of a series of beribboned Christmas ornaments that include 4 humbugs, a biscornu and 2 star ornaments. Collect them all!
