It's the most sparkly time of the year! Today's stitch comes from my Christmas tree. Literally.
I combined bugle beads and a small pearl for a fun take on a Parisian stitch for the white stripes on a Melissa Shirley ornament. I strongly recommend adding the beads on the horizontal axis. Start with the bugle beads and end with the pearls. This would be darling with mixed colors.
