Jingles Revisited

I stitched up Jingles back in April, but couldn't decide how to finish it into an ornament. Here's what I came up with today:

Designer: The Stitchworks Ltd
Time: 6 Hours
Fabric: 22ct mauve aida
Fibers: DMC and Rainbow
Gallery Wisper flosses
Embellishments: gold cording,
bells, and pearlized pins

Nancy was kind enough to send me the two little gold bells. Thank you, Nancy!

Well haven't you just been the finishing queen this week?? They are all fabulous! I was shopping this weekend and picked up more ribbon (now that I am using the stuff for finishing, thanks to you!!). You never know what project lies ahead and I like having supplies on hand. Now I don't just look for XS stuff, but for the accessories. Glad you put the bells to good use!
