"Sugar and  Lace"  #111

Christmas Sampler and Sugarplum Ornament

This elegant Christmas sampler is worked using rich colours of ecru, light blue and sparkling gold accented with rich earth colours. An Angel is decorating the tree, with gorgeous bands of specialty stitches and a lovely lacy heart charm decorating the Hardanger portion. I designed the matching Sugarplum ornament, a scrumptiously sweet confection of Hardanger flounces and ribbons, using some of the same shades.  It resembles a wrapped sweet candy ornament and can be made for your Christmas tree, or even as a gift for Valentine’s Day or a Birthday! Both pieces are stitched using luscious and subtly coloured silk flosses, while silky cream perlee and sparkling gold metallic threads and beads add drama to this exquisite piece. The sampler can be stitched in only a few evenings, including the Hardanger motifs at the bottom, and can then be made up very easily and quickly into a bellpull using simple bellpull hardware.  What a wonderful display of your special stitching talents! Look for Lisa's Beautiful Finishing for Bellpulls here.  As a bonus, look for the matching Hardanger Sugarplum Ornament inside the leaflet!  I hope you enjoy this design, and stitch it mindful of the kindness, peace and blessings of the holiday season to keep in your heart all the year long. Bellpull hardware is not included in this kit, but any 8cm bellpull hardware will fit. Quick to stitch, this sampler is fun and easy for last minute gifts. Merry Christmas! :-) - Thea
