Only four hours....
I stitched the entire ornament in just under four hours! Mystic by Loretta Spears Designs is 3.25 inches square worked on 18 count blue. I used the silver 1/16 ribbon to do the center design and then using the overdyed filled in the leaf stitch at the center points. More overdyed worked all the Smyrna crosses around the center and then out six stitches to do another round. The silver ribbon was then stitched in to create the diagonal stitches in between the Smyrna rows. Last, overdyed floss is used to stitch all of the back stiches. How fast! In the pile to be finished!
