It's hot here, too hot to do many things. However, it is not too hot to sit and do needlework. Continuing through the book Dorset Ring Buttons by Gina Barrett, this pattern is Maltese Cross - traditional.
This pattern is one that really intrigues me. It's called Yarrell - traditional. I can imagine many variations of this pattern with beads, multiple colors, and even different types of threads. This may be my ornament of choice for Christmas gift giving!
