As a change of pace from the Susan Roberts Christmas tree on red canvas, I selected another of Pippin's ministockings on interlock canvas. This one has 4 trees on it.
I have to chuckle to myself when I look at this--I just grabbed a green metallic and started stitching the basketweave on the background trees. Then I looked into the bag of fibers and realized that I had selected the lighter green to stitch the darker trees. Ah, well! I'm a needle artist and versatile, so I'll do the darker metallic on the single tree in the foreground. Anything to keep from frogging! I'm stitching this entire mini-stocking in Balger metallic. The top cuff area is done in the Byzantine mosaic. In person, the pattern barely shows so I'm glad you can see it in the photograph.
