Wishful Thinking by Sandy Meono

Anne Strite-Kurz, the designer, depicts a wonderful Christmas scene that makes the viewer smile. She used various stitches and indicated a good way to travel threads and see patterns in a slightly different way using pearl cotton, DMC and Anchor flow, Kreinik metallic braid, Rainbow Gallery Coronet Braid, Elegance, Very Velvet, and Sparkle Rays.

The only changes I made were to add a bead on the dog’s collar and a few extra stitches over the dog’s eye to make it look, to me, more like a Scottie.
