Ornament of the Month - May
I had to order some seed beads for this as I wasn't entirely happy with the many greens I already had, they just didn't have the exact shade of emerald I was looking for, most were just too dark.
Both designs are stitched on 16ct antique white Aida with 3 colours of DMC - pattern can be found here: Ornament of the Month - May - The hanging loops are made with craft thread. The beads along the edges are size 11 TOHO Silver lined Green Emerald (TR-11-36) seed beads that I loved using as they can be stitched with a size 28 tapestry needle.
I shall post the garland finish as soon as I have completed it.
