Another Christmas Ornament

(User error! I figured out why I was having trouble posting pictures! Smile!)

It's been another slow stitching week for me. Sooooo many things going on; I just feel like screaming "stop the madness!" As soon as the kids are settled in to school, I think it will get better.

Last night, I finished a third hardanger ornament. All three were designed by Donna Olson of Satin Stitches. This one has a lot of green in it - I used some leftover overdyed pearl cotton from Needle Necessities.

Over the weekend, I picked up the last of my framing from the LNS that's closing. They did a beautiful job on all of my pictures, but I wanted to post this one in particular - I finished it earlier this summer. I've never posted a picture of it before. This picture doesn't really do it justice - the frame looks like pine needles, the matting complements the thread colors - I just love it!

Cathy, your ornament is really pretty and your framed piece is gorgeous! You can make out the pine needle effect of the frame - it looks like a great match for the piece. Is it a Drawn Thread design?
