Merry May part 2 and Monthly challenge

You can stop nagging now ;D, here is my 2nd May ornament! This one is from the JCS 2007 Ornament Issue, and is by The Sunflower Seed. I fell in love with this the minute I saw it, and I'm really happy with how its come out, though its a tad larger than I'd normally do for an ornament.

Next up is the Monthly Challenge. This month the challenge was to stitch a biscornu. Regular readers will know I'm a sucker for biscornus (biscorni?) so I did 2, the first is from "les chroniques de frimousse", and the second is from The Victoria Sampler (join Thea's Yahoo group to access the free chart). The other finishes are in the album, and there are some beauties!

Here I thought "rubbing shoulders with the stars" referred to your ornament. I loved it when I first saw it and love yours even more. Do you want my snail mail so you can send it to me?
