FIRST LIGHT - Pending Release 3-25-11


First Light - size 109x109    This miniature was designed as a  companion piece to Creation. The model shown here, is worked with 1  strand of floss over 1 thread of 27 count light khaki Jobelan.   

In addition to full and half stitches, this design contains Algerian Eye, a single Border Flower, and fan stitches 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.  If stitched over 1 thread of fabric, it becomes a dainty of miniature - ornament size.   The design has instructions for stitching over 2, which allows more detail to be worked into the lettering.  An alphabet is included for personalizing your work.  First Light would be a meaningful Easter gift, with very special symbolism.
