Holly & Ribbon Humbug
COUNTED CROSS STITCH CHART BY FABY REILLY DESIGNS
With deep dark green leaves and bright red berries, holly is indispensable at Christmas time. This stitched ornament is exquisite, with metallic highlights on a colorful cross stitch background.
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!
