Photos of the mantle

Here's a quick post on my mantle canvas. The background, which I completely changed, is a Christmas tree darning pattern. The two parts of the rug are partly from the stitch guide, and partly re-done. The purple section of the rug is from the stitch guide. The green section is all new stitches selected by me. The green border is a cashmere stitch, then the inside is an alternating cashmere with a cross in the center......I did use the threads that came with the kit, mostly they were Impressions with a ribbon floss for the purple dots. I think the purple rug looks very "berber-like." Not sure I've ever seen a berber rug in these colors though.....
