Santa Fe Ornament

While I have been busy writing stitch guides for the Saints, I have been having fun stitching a quick project— a new design reminiscent of the Santa Fe Railroad. It is a 4 1/2 ” circle on 18 count canvas. I chose the same Milanese stitch as the white miter on Snow St. Nicholas, except that I will replace some of the tent stitches with red beads.You may have seen some of my other Santa Fe canvases on the Dream House website. A small stocking with a pueblo, mountains, and moon, and Santa Fe Heart, a hanging valentine with turquoise mountains.

I have spent many happy summers in New Mexico playing second harp in the Santa Fe Opera Orchestra. There is no place quite like Santa Fe, or the beautiful opera open air theater. When this ornament is finished it will hang on my Christmas tree, reminding me of the magic of that place.

If you are interested in stitching this ornament, e-mail me and I will send it to you. (I will be selling it rather than Dream House.)
