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.
