Another Challenge Piece

Yesterday was reveal day for the Needlecraft Haven Monthly Ornament Challenge. This month we all stitched this design from The Little Stitcher. I stitched mine on the same raw linen as last month's piece, using Crescent Colours - Bing Cherry, which could be my new favourite red, and Anchor 275 for the snow, because white was just too harsh. Finished as a simple ornament with a little cream pom pom trim to look like snowballs.

The other finishes are in the album here, and well worth a look

I really like this one. I like the red and I like the reindeer. Yes, I am beginning to check some of the blogs that I had been following before I went silent. I will check your wedding photography blog to see what you have been doing.

Really nice, Christine.....must look for that Anchor colour, I agree about white and goodness, I hate the look of it when I've stitched a snowman, say, my stitches just look meh!
