Happy Dance - 1st Christmas Ornie finish for the year!

Hello lovely bloggers,

As you have probably worked out by now I am a very much a serial starter of cross stitch projects and this is borne out by the fact that this is only my third finish for the year.  But nevertheless, I have been having a happy dance all afternoon after finishing my first Christmas ornie for the year:

Shepherd's Bush Christmas ABC
Stitched on Wichelt Prairie Green 28t Linen
Using DMC threads 2 over 2
"Just Cross Stitch" 2011 Christmas Ornaments magazine

The suggested finish is a little pillow ornament finish but I am thinking of framing it because it was actually a lot of work.  It was very fiddly and if I ever did it again I would start in the top left hand corner, rather than the centre.  I would love some opinions about how I should finish it - I am definitely open to suggestion.

Hugs, Kaye xoxox


Very nice Kaye. Yay for Happy Dances :)

I really like the idea of a pillow finish but it would look great framed too...

Very cute finish. I think a little pillow finish would be sweet.

Awe it's adorable! I think the finish will depend o n how big it is. You could make a small throw pillow out of it, even!
