The Berry Bird

This is my January ornament. It's called The Berry Bird by Theron Traditions. It's from JCS 2000 Christmas Ornament magazine. I changed the red Palestrina knots and used beads instead to give it a little glitz. I used a metal finishing form and stitched the date on the back. This was so much fun and I'm looking to see what I want to stitch for February's SAL already. Thanks Nicki for putting this SAL together!!!
