Shop stitching, RUSH job 4

The houses are completed with the wreath bows stitched in tent stitch with Balger metallic.  I've started stitching the large wreath using basketweave.  Next I did the garland on the mantle in varying lengths of slanted gobelin in two shades of impressions.  I'll finish the garland off next week with a sprinkling of French knots done in gold and red Balger metallic.

I stitched the two gold packages in checkerboard mosaic using gold Balger metallic.  The red stocking I stitched in the slanted gobelin alternating with row of continental stitch.  The tree on the stocking was stitched in continental stitch using Balger metallic; the ornaments are gold metallic French knots.  The cuff and toe are Byzantine mosaic in impressions.
