Noel, XIII

Slow, but steady wins the race--or finishes a needlepoint canvas.  I'm about half-way through the gold ornament and would be further if the slippery metallic would just stay threaded!  And I've accomplished another inch of the white central area.

I keep looking at the two ornaments that are green trees on white metallic.  I'm toying with the idea of outlining them because I think their white metallic tends to merge with the white Stardust I'm using for the background.  Any thoughts?

  1. I think you're right about the white against the white background. But either the red or the green would be too much contrast for outlining. Could you backstitch with, say, a DMC 762 for just a hint of contrast?
