Crazy for multiply Christmas designs which will be displayed in a wooden box?  Brenda's "O Tannenbaum" is just the chart for you.  There are a total of 5 designs to be stitched, all of which could also be used in different ways....on a wooden tote to hold Christmas Cards for example.  So if you only have time for one of the designs just take your pick.   To fit the box you need to stitch them on the recommended 36 ct. linen (she's used Legacy linen by Picture This Plus) over 2 threads.  Flosses needed are:

Weeks Dye Works:Sandcastle and Red Rocks

Gentle Arts: Dried Thyme, Apricot Blush, Old Red Paint, Cidermill Brown, Woodrose, Roasted Marshmellow, Wood Trail

While Brenda designed this to be stitched on 28 ct. Mushroom Lugana, I saw it and instantly saw this as a perfect design to stitch on 18 ct. over 2 for a nice size chair or sofa pillow approx. 15" x 6", using pearl cottons...fabulous.  The finished size, when working on 28 linen would be 5 3/8" x 2", for a cute pin cushion or a little accent pillow for your bowl display.  Either way a perfect pillow for Christmas.    The piece is finished off with linen ric rac trim for added detail.   If stitching over one is daunting for you, well just stitch over 2 threads or on aida and just increase the size of linen or aida you get.  For instance over 2 on 28 ct. would finish approx. 11" x 4".  Anyway you stitch it, it's a great Christmas design.  Fibers used are:

Weeks Dye Works: Palomino

Gentle Arts: Woodrose, Wood Trail and Endive

Classic Colorworks: Chili Pepper, Eggshell, Peanut Brittle & Straw Hat

Jingle All The Way............................Brenda Gervais

Weeks Dye Works: Peach and Oscar

Classic Colorworks-Chili Pepper, Gingerbread, Cherry Cobbler and Ye Old Gold

Gentle Arts- Woodrose, Parchment, Apple Cider, Roasted Marshmellow, and Wood Trail

For finishing she used Lady Dot Creates mini pom trim, Vintage.
