Stitching Instructions for Beaded Version
Start with a Border of Smyrna Crosses - 14 for each side. Use 2 strands of Flair RG117 - Iridescent White

Tink TIP - Alternate the direction of the last bar on the Smyrna Cross Stitches between Horizontal and Vertical to maximize the sparkle!

Stitch the Background with 6 strands of
Splendor S860 - Light Blue using Basketweave over 2. Use a Laying Tool or your fingers to keep the stitching flat.

Following the Chart, stitch the Branch with 2 strands of Bravo A126 - Green/Brown (varigated) reversing 1 strand to get a more interesting color mixture.
Use Wrapped Backstitch.

Stitch the Pine Needles with 1 strand of Bravo A131 - Cool Greens (varigated) using Random Straight Stitch. Follow the guidelines on the chart but put in many more stitches (See Photo of Pin).

Tink TIP  Start the Pine Needles at the end of each twig, away from the twig and alternate the end of each stitch in 1 of 3 ways:
1) burying it UNDER the Branch
2) carrying it just over the Branch
3) ending it in the center of the Branch stitching.
The idea is NOT to get a hard edge where the Pine Needles meet the Branch!

Put a row of Green Seed Beads just inside the Border where the Smryna Cross Stitches and the Blue Background meet.

Tink TIP  After stitching the beads along one side, run the thread back thru the entire row to straighten and tighten them.

Finally Stitch individual white beads on using the placement of the Black dots on the chart as a guide.




Stitching Instructions for Non-Beaded Version
Start with a Border of Smyrna Crosses - 14 for each side. Use 2 strands of Flair RG117 - Iridescent White

Tink TIP - Alternate the direction of the last bar on the Smyrna Cross Stitches between Horizontal and Vertical to maximize the sparkle!

Stitch 1 row of Tent Stitch inside of Border all the way around using 3-4
strands of Bravo A131.

Stitch the Background with 6 strands of
Splendor S860 - Light Blue using Basketweave over 2. Use a Laying Tool or your fingers to keep the stitching flat.

Following the Chart, stitch the Branch with 2 strands of Bravo A126 - Green/Brown (varigated) reversing 1 strand to get a more interesting color mixture.
Use Wrapped Backstitch.

Stitch the Pine Needles with 1 strand of Bravo A131 - Cool Greens (varigated) using Random Straight Stitch. Follow the guidelines on the chart but put in many more stitches (See Photo of Pin).

Tink TIP  Start the Pine Needles at the end of each twig, away from the twig and alternate the end of each stitch in 1 of 3 ways:
1) burying it UNDER the Branch
2) carrying it just over the Branch
3) ending it in the center of the Branch stitching.
The idea is NOT to get a hard edge where the Pine Needles meet the Branch!

Finally stitch individual Half Cross Stitches in this \ direction (In the opposite direction of a standard Needlepoint Stitch!) over the Background. Use 2 strands of
Flair RG117 - Iridescent White. Use the placement of the Black dots on the chart as a guide.
