Crazy Challenge Day 11 Start & Finish!

c2010 The Drawn Thread 
Stitched on 32ct mystery linen
Stitched with Silk'N Colors, DMC and Mill Hill Beads

Another weekday, another ornament!  Day 11 found us on Friday picking out another ornament to stitch up for our Crazy Start.  After a couple of JCS ornament starts I picked out a freebie I've been wanting to start for a few years now.  So yesterday I found the file, printed it, and  kitted it up.

 Front

Back - I repeated the center motif for the back

Not only did I start this ornament, I finished it as well!  That's 5 out of 11 so far finished, not a bad!!!  This is another piece that's not very intense but very effective and quick to stitch... of course many people tell me that my idea of quick isn't most people's idea of quick????  I would say this takes about 5 hours maybe and that includes the front and back with backstitch outlines for future finishing.
