There was also a pattern to stitch “wrapped” candies. I do want to stitch up a couple but I need to dig out the tub of mystery fabric and find some 36 count white. I just haven’t gotten to it. Maybe Wednesday when I hibernate inside while it snows outside!

This past week I participated in the Mystery SAL from Brenda Gervais (With Thy Needle and Thread). She shared a free holiday pattern called Merry and Minty.
Starting last Monday, every other day a part of a mystery design released. I finished mine up last night so today I put it together. I just used what I had in my stash as far as fabric and floss.
No matter how tight I pull the lacing, there is always more to tighten.
I like to pull the mitered corners even tighter with a few whipped stitches. It helps .....
give you the nice sharp corner.
Stitching front to back and almost done.
Ta-Da! I did add gold beads at the center of the poinsettias and I used cranberry beads for the holly berries. I thought about using beads for the cranberries and popcorn but felt it would take away from the Prim design. The bow at the top really does match the color in the floss. For now, the bow is only clipped in place.
I am phyched now. I want to sew more ornaments!
The pattern is available on FB or Instagram, under Brenda Gervais.
