I really like French needlework and that inspired this trio of Christmas Box cross stitch ornaments. Lots of swirls and curls and all in one color. That can be relaxing in itself, stitching with one color. I added a little gold filament and a few gold beads for accent and sparkle.
After finishing the blue Christmas tree I realized the backing was in the shape of a Christmas tree light bulb. Did you notice that? For the other ornament I used a floss called "Dickens Christmas" so I gave it the title, "An Ornament for Charles".
