First ornament of 2013!

I've finished it yesterday so I guess I'm still good for the 2013 Ornament SAL :-).

I'm not completely sure if it's only the stitching that needs to be finished or the entire ornament ... I'll have to check that!

So without further delay, here it is:

Spring in my Garden
Barbara Ana Designs
 
It was a real joy to stitch but the only thing I didn't like doing were the bees ... very small and fidly :-)
 
I've also changed the colour of the rabbit, chicken and the bees wings from DMC Desert Sand (colour variation) to 738 (rabbit and chicken) and white (bees wings) ... otherwise they wouldn't show well on the fabric. 
 
In the meantime I've already started the Barbara Ana "Owl-o-ween" design :-)

Nice to see some pretty spring stitching--especially when we are having the coldest day of our winter so far!! Your color changes work very well, too!! Great job :)

Hello

What a lovely finish and such a contrast to the weather here which is snow, snow and more snow!
Have a good week!

We have blue skies and the sun for the last 2 days here in Galway.
