Design: Oh Christmas Tree sampler
Designer/Source: Just Cross Stitch 2009 Christmas ed.
Fabric: 28 ct. evenweave   Color: khaki
Floss: DMC, over 2, chart-indicated except for Notes
Started: Oct 2009
Finished: 21 May 2010
Size: 3¼" x 2½" (widest parts)
Goofs: none
Purpose: Christmas ornament
Notes: omitted "2009"; replaced DMC 3813 with 3815 because I didn't have any and the metallic E168 with DMC 30762R; I got a little annoyed with the Cushion and Rhodes Heart stitches...those and lack of a color was the delay in completion time, it takes nowhere near 8 months to stitch!
Available? Yes
