Magic Gingerbread House Musical Note & More! August 06 2019
I made a change on the Musical Notes. Yes, in the actual book they are various bright colors, but I decided that in my StoryBook Stocking they are going to be black. This is the fun part of stitching, we can make changes as we like...it's all good, and certainly ok.

I chose to change mine to black...
FIBER: Kreinik Metallic Tapestry Braid #12, 2 strands COLOR: Black #010 HL
Background, "Christmas Tree Light Wire, "Glass" Globe
FIBER: Weeks Dye Works Cotton Pearl #5, 2 Strands COLOR: Lilac #2334P5 STITCH: Pavillion Diamonds
Christmas Tree Light "Wire":
FIBER: Weeks Dye Works Pearl Cotton #3, 2 Strands COLOR: Hunter #2156 STITCH: Outline Stitch
"Glass" on the Snow Globe:
FIBER: Kreinik 1/8" Easter Grass, 1 Strand STITCH: I am doing kind of loose Cross Stitches.
NOTE: In places where it appears a little "skimpy", I'm adding an extra X- stitch or two. The idea is to give it a glassy, sparkly edge. I'm also adding a few long stitches with this Easter Grass to the horizontal stitches on the front of the globe. Adding to the magic...one stitch at a time!
