Seaside Christmas

This Christmas design features some of my favorite things - a lighthouse decorated with a Christmas wreath, two fir trees with ornaments, a few traces of snow in the sand, and two Laughing Gulls on the beach.

The model was stitched on 28-count Wichelt hand-dyed linen in Stormy Gray.  The stitch count is 48 x 47 stitches, and the finished piece is 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" when stitched on 28-count fabric. 

DMC floss is used throughout.  French knots were used for the ornaments on the trees and the berries on the wreath, but colored beads could be used if you prefer.
