FIRST LIGHT - Pending Release 3-25-11



First Light -  
size 109x109 was designed as a  companion piece to our much larger  “Creation”. The model is worked with 1  strand of floss over 1 thread of 28 count light khaki Jobelan.  


Stitch types are full, half, Algerian Eye, a single Border Flower, and fan stitches which are created with simple straight lines.  It is charted in DMC for easy translation into the floss of your choice. 

First Light is ideal for cross stitch or needlepoint and over 1 thread of fabric, it becomes a true miniature - ornament size.   The design has instructions for stitching over 2, which allows more detail to be worked into the lettering.  If you are working this over 1 thread of fabric, ignore the fractional stitches – they are not needed and the alphabet will be just as lovely. A full alphabet is included for personalizing your work.  First Light would be a meaningful Easter gift, with very special symbolism.  This design in PDF is available for immediate download  Etsy.com-TemptingTangles

As I wrote the other day, I have been invited to participate in several issues of Just Cross Stitch Christmas - both the ornament issues and the fall issue with a profile. I am happy to say I have finally completed the designing and stitching of the two ornaments for JCS.  


 Just because I am a big tease, I thought I would post a snippet of a snip here and lead you to My Blog where you can see a wee bit more.      Snip 1 and Snip 2 at right and bottom
