So for January's block (yes I know I'm late, had to wait for my pears to be made by my friend Kathy) - I give you the first day of Christmas.
The 'one' is goldwork and their tree is chain stitch, stem stitch, and wrapped wires.
Finished of with the seams of gold creten stitch, burgundy chevron and cream blanket stitch. The top left corner is trimmed with green and burgundy braid. Here was my sketch of what I wanted to achieve for this block, I think I came pretty close to what I wanted. I really think the pears make it.
