The Fruits of My Labor

I spent a good portion of my day on some finishing. One of the designs in this year's JCS Ornament magazine caught my eye - it's from Miss Crescent's Crowne and the picture can be found on page 60.

Here's my version of this sweet, oh-so-quick-to-stitch design:



It's stitched on the recommended WDW 30 ct Scuppernog with CC Red Currant and CC Snowball. I substituted a snowflake button in place of the snowman button. It's finished as a flat ornament with ruched ribbon on all four sides. The red jingle bells seemed like the perfect compliment for this design! Whatcha think?

It took me a few hours to finish...I have nine more of these stitched up. Ugh! But they will be so gosh darn cute!
