Merry Christmas

Here is my May ornament, Merry Christmas. The design is by Glory Bee from the JCS 10th Anniversay Collection. I decided to stitch it over one on 28ct Platinum Cashel, and although was a bit hard on the eyes and meant I need my magnifier, I am very pleased with the reult. I substituted all the colours except the green. I really didn't like the GAST Claret that was used for the words "Merry Christmas", so used DMC 115, which is, in my opinion, a much better colour and blends well with the others, which are a combination of WDW and GAST. It's not finished off into an ornament yet as I need to gather supplies for that. I'll probably have a great finishing off session. later in the year.
