Fern-y Scroll-y

I just love the look of this simple pattern. So earthy and natural.
I used only one color of floss, since it was variegated: DMC variegated green #94.
I did the entire pattern in stem stitch, which I am now pretty good at! But it did get a little boring. I think if I hadn't been trying to get these done for Christmas, I would have worked on a different set at the same time, one with a different stitch to keep things interesting. I wish I could remember where I found this motif. Somewhere out there on the web.

All wrapped up for presents!
I think Tallen chose this one from the basket.
