Serendipitous Jo's January Christmas Tree Finish

I have decided to follow the 12 Days of Christmas theme for this year but will dip into the other themes as and when I have something suitable.

This month I have a lovely tiny finish, my first of 2017.  This is Antique Christmas Trees by JBW:


I stitched it over one on 32count white linen using the DMC conversion.  I changed the alphabet to 3721 rather than white which would have just blended into the fabric.  I think it was supposed to be snow under the trees.  The top photo is very true to colour, we have a new lightbulb in the kitchen which seems to work well for colour!  The bottom photo was taken in the living room and I've added some coins for scale:


L-R : 1penny, 1pfennig, 5centimes and 1cent

  4. What a sweet design! I just had to go see if I could find this anywhere to buy and I think I like your red letters better than the white :)
