I hope you all had a good Easter! (This was my Luna bar Saturday morning before choir practice, visiting Michael's parents, architectural tour of Sovereign and running tons of errands.)

A couple weekend ago I was able to "ornamentify" my latest finished ornament.
Oriental Splendor
Cindy Valentine Designs, from JCS 2008 ornament issue
22 ct. Ariosa with Anchor #8 pearl cotton, Watercolors and Kreinik #4 braid

Stitching around all those corners was not exactly fun, but I love the result! Here's the copious back personalization again: Then I started thinking, Gee, could I have picked a more boring background? Surely I have something Asian I can photograph this next to? Aaahhh...we have a winner!

One ornament down, three to go...before July!! Yikes!!
