Christmas Ornament Finish

Another weekend almost gone! At least I have a small finish to show. This is Country Cottage Needleworks Winter's Eve Christmas ornament from the 2006 JCS Christmas Ornament Issue.
I stitched it in DMC stranded cotton on self-dyed 28ct fabric. The moon is stitched in DMC Precious metal Effects E677 - I love this colour - it is a blend of gold and silver.
I stitched the little sheep in Rainbow Gallery White Wisper thread to give him a fluffy look :)
I worked a little bit on Scheherazade - not that you can see much difference yet! I am still enjoying it very much, even though I can't see a picture developing at this stage.

We had a lovely Spring day here yesterday, but today it is back to Winter! It is as wet as can be with persistent rain.

Only grey skies to be seen!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and Happy Stitching!
