Update: Added a diagram to match the stitched sample because, well, I don’t want you to think you’re losing your mind. That said, it’s clear I’m losing mine. Enjoy!
December’s posts are from my collection of Christmas pillows. So brace yourself for a lot of red and green. Yes, yes, I know the holidays embrace far more colors than my pillows do, so please reimagine these stitches in your favorite holiday colors! I promise all of the colors will work!
We kick off December with a #stitchingsunday featuring a long time favorite stitch, the Trifecta. The stitched sample is from a background on a Meri Meri Designs Christmas piece, using Snow and Rachelette, both from Caron Collection Threads. The diagram on the far right is another way you could fill the area between the blocks of white.
This stitch diagram, along with all other #whimsicalwednesday and #smallspacesunday stitch diagrams, can also be found on a Pinterest board here.

A Note about Diagrams
I use color in diagrams to make them as clear as possible. The primary function of different colored lines is to illustrate a stitch sequence. For example, layering of colors demonstrates you add them in that order. They can also provide ideas on how to integrate additional threads (one line for each color). Or, you can use the same thread for all color lines. That's where I encourage you to use your imagination for the space you are stitching!
