21. The Sweetheart Tree Finger Fun I


Finger Fun I by The Sweetheart Tree
stitched on 28 count Platinum linen
This was a gift from Vickie.
I used the charted DMC 902 for the darker red and substituted 3722 for the charted 3726 which looked too brown to me.  
I also used standard size beads instead of the charted petite.  
The standard beads filled the spaces much better than the petites.  
Plus I had them in my stash and didn't have the petites!

16. Teresa Wentzler Byzantine Ornament I


Byzantine Ornament I by Teresa Wentzler

The photo shows the original ornie as designed by Teresa and you can see I made a couple of changes!  
The fabric being the big one, I stitched on 28 count burgundy linen.  
I used the yellows as charted but changed the accent colour to DMC321 and all the backstitch to DMC's gold 5284.  
I also changed the beads to 42011 because I didn't have enough 40557 and I thought they were prettier too.
