Description:  A charming symmetrical design stitched in shades of green, pink, blue, gold and white, accented with beads.

Background Information: This small ornament was designed as a teaching piece. I taught it years ago (I can't remember the year: sorry!) as an introduction to the specialty stitch techniques used in "English Cottage Sampler".

Stitching Comments:  Since this design is very small, it is an excellent introduction to my charting and designing techniques. The whole stitch technique used in the miniature mirrors the style used in the large design. And it includes several different specialty stitches as well. While the piece can be finished as an ornament, it would also work nicely as a sachet... or, stitched on an even finer count fabric, it would make a very elegant scissors fob.

Pattern Errors/Corrections: none
