A Desired Finish

This is number four of five ornament kits I purchased a few years ago in New Orleans at Garden District Needlework.

It was kitted with DMC floss and I made a few substitutions. Mostly with Pepper Pot silk. But my last green, the French knots and green around the pink flowers, is Baroque silk. I won't use that again on 18ct canvas. You have to use two of three strands and it wants to knot. I think I'd love it as is on 13ct.

Anyway. Love my little streetcar. Will eventually be turned into an flat ornament.

Shorter lengths may help the knotting. But there are so many silks that you may just prefer another brand.
