Christmas Ornaments from Alice Peterson
The V-shaped design shows how a couched string of beads looks. I liked it, but chasing all those beads around while I tried to string them and then couch them was irritating, to say the least.
The right top of the design below the V-shape shows the same gold beads tent-stitched. They barely show up, so they were nixed.
At the top, I couched Kreinik Hot Wire on the anchor-shaped design. This is what I ultimately used for the outlines on the entire ornament. After a lot of practice, it wasn't even difficult!
Working on the stitch guide now - more to come ...
