My feeble attempt at an ornament..

The Gift of Stitching Magazine is running a contest. You stitch up the pattern in any manner you like, using any threads you like and show off a pic of it. Well, here's my pic:

I made it a two sided ornament, one green and one red. I used Caron Wildflowers thread in "Holiday" on 14 ct aida and made a loop hanger with some cording I had on hand. The pics just don't show the detail in it very well. I think it's cute and it will be going to a wonderful friend for the holidays.
I love the little pattern and have a ton of ideas rolling around in my head for it so you may see it make an appearence again in the future....maybe for valentines day.
Hope everyone is having a great week! Happy stitching!


  1. And just where did you get Caron Wildflowers Holiday from? Could it have been from a good friend?
    Love the ornament! You did a great job.

  2. Very cute, Mary. I really love the Caron Collection threads.

  3. I think it is cute too. I am sure your friend will love it.

  5. Very nice! Love the two-sided idea.

  6. I love the two sided idea as well, and the yummy holiday colors. Great job!
