Bargello Pine Trees

My ANG CyberPointer’s chapter started working on various ornaments using various types of stitching. My favorite was the Bargello Pine Trees.

When I went into my stash, I found a coordinated packet of ThreadworX threads. I switched overdyed floss from my stash which was a light blue to match the other threads better. And, I needed a contrasting dark for a row so I used Petite Very Blue. The wild blue from The Legacy Collection that was polyamide just didn’t fit in this piece. I ended up using (from outer rows inward with ThreadworX unless noted): 2 strands #8 braid white (71124), 4 strands overdyed floss light blue (1018), 1 strand #12 braid light blue (91015), 1 strand Expressions medium blue (224S), 2 strands #8 braid dark blue, 1 strand Vineyard Silk (V118), 1 strand Petite Very Velvet dark blue (V634), and overdyed Italian wool white (W842). And, 1 strand of #8 braid silver (71122) placed on the upper section.

As it ended up, I did run out of one thread & had to substitute but it really matched well enough. Can anyone see?

I forgot to mention that this is a free pattern from The Caron Collection (Caron-net.com). They offer quite a few really nice ones.

as usual love your finished projects with the designs and threads. My stitching has been placed in a holding pattern for awhile. Got to get my husband back on road to recovery sigh! so my knitting has picked up—easier and keeps my mind —in control. Merry Christmas to you.

Thanks Carol. I wish I could say I put all the colors together myself but I did decide where to put them! Knitting is something I tried briefly-made my shoulders tense. Probably didn’t give it enough practice. Happy Holidays to you & yours with best wishes for a healthy, happy New Year!
