Christmas Gazebo  Sampler #86
A$16.95 +p&h

Companion to Silk Wysteria, Gazebo Roses, Sweet Pea, and Bougainvillea Samplers !

“My Christmas Garden is a joy
With holly green and crimson red.
Snow like frosting on each bough,
And heavenly singing overhead.”

An elegant wrought iron Gazebo nestling in crisp white snow shows off the gorgeous silk Poinsettias beautifully! My little verse can be changed so that the first phrase reads:“My Winter Garden” if you don’t want to emphasize Christmas. I used some delicious overdyed silk ribbon and flosses, as well as a variety of richly coloured silk floss for the stitching. I then added lustrous pearls, seed beads, sequins, silk ribbons and sparkling metallics for this new Christmas Gazebo sampler. Adorable little red cardinals frolic all through this sampler, adding joy and happiness to the quiet gentle scene. You will learn how to work the following stitches, including the Herringbone, Honeycomb Hemstitch, simple silk ribbon, Rhodes Heart, Diamond Eyelet, Plait Stitch, Smyrna Crosses, and various filling stitches for the Hardanger area which forms the lower band. This sampler is worked on different fabric than Silk Wysteria, Gazebo Roses, Sweet Pea, and Bougainvillea samplers, although all of the Gazebo Samplers are a similar concept and size. There are two little ornaments that go with this sampler. One is found in the 2007 Christmas Ornament issue of Just Cross Stitch magazine, and the other is on our website as a free pattern! Enjoy stitching this exquisite gazebo sampler to give away, or keep for yourself this Christmas! This leaflet is dedicated to the gardener at Christmas!  May you always keep a garden in your heart. - Thea
