Christmas Ornament for Becky

I'm afraid that with my lifestyle changes I ran late with the final Christmas Ornament for the Christmas Ornament Swap - this one was for Becky - she seemed to be pretty OK with my need to mail a little late - compounded by the unexpected early closing of the PO just before Fourth of July... sigh... but the ornament did reach her yesterday - whew!

Great ornament! That's too funny... that was another ornament that I was considering to stitch for you for the HOE Christmas in July exchange when I ended up going with Christmas Joy instead.

Your ornament for Becky is beautiful. The outer green border with the beads is striking, what stitch did you use?

Have a great week~

I've tried to email you a couple of time, but mail doesn't come through. Just wonder how you are, and missing you :)
You did a lovely exchange for Becky!

Oh Carol, this is a really nice one. No wonder that I haven't seen it before - I don't have the preview ornament issue yet and have to irder it soon.
