Christmas Diamonds by Kurdy Biggs of Threedles, Diamond Three

This is the third of the Christmas Diamonds by Kurdy Biggs from the Needlepoint Now November/December 2015 issue.

This has the same colors as the first diamond and is also on a white canvas with silver sparkles. I added some small (3mm) silver bugle beads and did the beads a little differently than diagrammed. The same size beads are inside the border Jessicas.

I finished the Jessica border during my last Saturday afternoon with my ANG Main Line Stitchers chapter (always the 4th Saturday at Starbucks on Lancaster Ave in Wayne, PA from 11 am to 3 pm).

No changes to the threads or beads from the first diamond. The threads are Kreinik #4 Braid 1432, Entice E248, Silk Lame Braid Petite SP118, Splendor S988, and Treasure Braid TR277. The beads are Miyuki Delica Beads 15/0 DBS0166 and Sundance Beads Size 11 and Size 14/15 Color 327P; the beading thread is from Sundance too in Teal and Turquoise colors.

I have enough thread and beads to do the third but I’m getting ready to take a couple of classes. So, I will probably not stitch the second diamond. But, I would like to see them all stitched. And, the finishing should be done at the same time. What to do!?!
