My first ornament of the year, M Design's Joy Tree. It's not bringing me much joy right at this moment. I have to frog all of the unfinished half of the tree, because the tops of the y were supposed to meet and they did not. It is stitched over one on 28 count jobelan, and the thought of unpicking those tiny stitches is instant inspiration to procrastinate! I am stitching this for Christopher's teacher. She also taught him last year (composite Grade 2/3) and we gave her Peace Tree last Christmas. It seemed right to give her another tree design this year. The fabric colour does not photograph well. It's an off cut from Swirly Sampler, and is actually a pale green called Thyme, by Dragonfly Dreams. The floss is GAST Deep Sea.
