Christmas Garden is another of the OOP charts from the Blackbird Design ladies. I bought it some time ago as I knew it would sell out fast like many of their charts do. I put it aside for stitching at some later date. A group of us decided to work on this in 2016 so I started a Stitch-A-Long for it. Rather than use the recommended threads and fabric, I decided on 16ct Regency Aida from Picture This Plus and the Victorian Christmas Collection from Victorian Motto Samplers.
I started on this project on January 24, 2016. Final selection of threads include:
- Dark Varigated Pine and Victorian Cranberry for the outside border
- Holly Leaves and Old Cranberry for the inside green and red shades
- Antique Bronze and Olds Gold for the inside shades of gold
