Stitching on Silk Gauze
Where to Buy
HomeAboutPetitesCross StitchContact

Available for both silk gauze and linen! Be sure to specify which when you purchase from your retailer.

The holy family on a holy night, surrounded by stars and some of the traditional nativity creatures, either will do nicely as an ornament for your tree, wreath and other holiday décor.

I used felted wool to cap both berries, adding custom straight pins and/or tiny brass star charms.

Threads for the Silk Berry:
