January Ornament Finished

I was able to stitch a good portion of the afternoon today & I was able to finish the stitching of my January ornament. This evening, I did the finishing work. I am real happy with how this one turned out.
It is a Pickle Barrel Design called Christmas Eve. It was in the JCS ornament issue this past year. I used Earthen 32 ct. lugana from Picture this Plus. I used 2 of the recommended flosses & subbed the third.
I tried to do the finishing very similar to how they showed it in the magazine.
Next up......my February Word Play, so that it is ready to hang in a couple weeks! Thanks for stopping by & visiting my blog. I appreciate each & every one of you!

That's a very lovely ornament that you stitched and finished for yourself. I have just seen the ornaments you made for your grandsons and they are so beautiful. Just perfect for little boys.
