O Tannenbaum in Gold
CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Faby Reilly Designs
This is a green and gold variation of Faby Reilly's ornamental "Christmas tree", where many birds nest. OTannenbaum in blue is home to blue tits, and the Pink Tannenbaum features doves. This time, Faby Reilly takes us all the ways to the tropics to meet birds of paradise.
The tree has taken on the colors of orange and gold. Blue-feathered birds with a black crest nestle in the branches and tropical flowers, birds of Paradise, complete the exotic Christmas scene.
As always, the needlework design based on cross stitch is embellished with special embroidery stitches including pretty triple crosses and a variation of the heart of Rhodes ... the octagon. High Lustre gold metallic thread, mother-of-pearl sequins and 2-tone seed beads (gold and iridescent black) complete the embroidery.
For easier reading, the chart is available in 2 parts with first the cross stitch only, then a 2nd chart with all the embellishment. A comprehensive tutorial is included with the chart for all specialty stitches.
