Ornament of the Month - January

It's the first Friday or the month (in the USA at least lol) and here is the first pattern! Garnet is the birthstone of the month of January so I used 3 shades of garnet for the pattern. The Legend is below the pattern.

Ornament of the Month - January

Legend:

Stitches:

ª                               DMC Cotton 816    garnet

¬                              DMC Cotton 814    garnet - dk

 

Back stitches:                DMC Cotton 815    garnet - md

This is the ornament finished as part of the garland. Made on 16 ct antique white Aida, which makes it 2 1/4" square, in the colours listed above. I sewed it together in the way you'd sew a biscornu together adding beads (Güntermann - not sure of size) adding loops made of twisted craft thread and at the bottom I added a Czech lead bead in garnet red with gold vein painted on it on both sides.

This is the ornament finished with the border from the wall hanging finishing suggestion. Made on 16 ct antique white Aida, which makes it 3" square, in the colours listed above. I sewed it together in the way you'd sew a biscornu together adding beads (Güntermann - not sure of size) every other stitch. I added a loop made of twisted craft thread to hang it with and at the bottom I added a tassel made with the same thread and a bicone glass bead.
