This Alice Peterson ornament’s bold colors mean that any background should be in a more muted color to allow them to shine. I’m stitching it using an overdyed Vineyard Silk from Threadworx. I was intrgued by some stitches I saw on the Poppy Monk site and decided to stitch the background in Vertical Elongated Diagonal Cashmer, below. The subtle overdye keeps it rom looking too flat.
i’m stitching over the star. it will be addd with a Mill Hill button.
