Four trees ministocking

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.
