Cross Stitch Ornament


I finished my cross stitch ornament tonight and hung it on our tree, which still has very few ornaments on it, as we're waiting to hang them until all four of us are available . . . Although the background color looks white, it is really a "natural" or "raw" 28 count linen, and I used the alternate DMC colors instead of the Weeks Dye Works Floss. Even with a magnifying glass, the stitching was tedious, but not as much as the ornament I'm working on now, Christmas Holly by Hands to Work (also from JCS Christmas Ornaments 2007.) Oh, the joys of getting older!
