Wow, May 1 already. I love vases & so I stuck pretty much with this design.

I used:

  • Diagonal Leaf & Leaf # 3 for tree trunk
  • Woven Spider Web for flowers
  • cross stitch for lower portion of vase & 3×3 cross on upper portion
  • darning pattern for background (which you might not be able to see b/c it is a light colored thread – it is a simple diamond pattern)
  • 6-trip herringbone for outer border

Stitch books used:

  • The Needlepoint Book by Jo Ippolito Christensen
  • Stitches To Go by Suzanne Howren and Beth Robertson
