ATTENTION! Are you doing this stitch-along. I have three thread kits available for $31, including priority mail shipping in the US. If you want one, contact me & I’ll send you an invoice.
With this delightful Christmas Tree gift tag from Bee’s Knees we’ll be doing our first-ever stitch-along. Each week we’ll have instructions for another part of the tree. Here’s the schedule:
- Week 1: 9/1 thread list & bottom stripe (green)
- Week 2: 9/8 second stripe (dark green stripe)
- Week 3: 9/15 third stripe (blue-green stripe)
- Week 4: 9/22 top of tree (lime stripe)
- Week 5: 9/29 trunk and background
There is another tree from Bee’s Knees, pictured below, that some of you are stitching. As a bonus each week a second stitch for that tree will be featured. The striped tree will feature Cashmere Stitches. The checked tree will feature Byzantine Stitches. Both trees will use the same threads, background, and trunk.
If you are stitching the strpied tree, stitch this stripe in Sally Stitch, below, using Neon Rays. I found this great stitch on Whimsical Stitch.
If you are stitching the squares tree, stitch the green squares in Byzantine 2, below, using Neon Rays.
