Melissa Shirley stable for small creche

Macy came in Tuesday and picked up the congress cloth creche pieces with unstitched figures.  I have stitched all the navy backgrounds with the exception of about 1/3 of the camel background.  I think we will have the figures completed in plenty of time before the annual Festival of Trees where these will be a featured item.

Today I started stitching on the 18mesh stable. 

I started stitching the top front facade of the stable using DMC perle 5 in the slanted gobelin stitch with outlines of continental stitches.  I also started the starlit sky background in basketweave, again using DMC perle 5.

  1. That's a darling canvas and the perfect backdrop for your little figures. It will be interesting to see what stitches you use.
