October Ornie already

Speedy or what? This one is by Miss Crescent's Crowne from this year's JCS Ornament Edition, though I changed the colours to use what I had in the house.
I finished this one a little differently to my usual style. I padded the front, which I don't normally do (Shh, don't tell anyone, but it was to disguise the rather uneven job I made of cutting out my mountboard ovals), and sandwiched some pretty dark red and silver ric rac between the two sides when I stitched them together, and overall I'm quite pleased with the result so I might do it that way again (plus it avoided the use of glue which is always a bonus)

Very pretty Christine. I like to see these little orni's done with some padding as I like the softer look you get.
