Brenda Stofft designed this camel that is festively bedecked. 

We stitched the camel's fur in the long/short split stitch using 3 different shades of Medici yarn.  The ground was done in the interlocking gobelin in a solid tone of Medici.  The sky was basketweave in a navy fiber.  The stars were stitched using white gold rush 18. 

The blanket and neck collar were stitched in perle cotton with a multitude of various metallics to emphasize the impression of gems and  precious metals.

The overall finishing was done as a standing stuff with cording made of a combination of gold and silver metallic.  The camel could have also been finished as a hanging ornament.  Finished it stands about 8" tall.
