Three French Hens Ornament

At long last, I found the energy to stitch another Christmas Ornament for my basket. This time I chose an old freebie from my freebie drawer - from a packet that has designs for each of the "Twelve Days of Christmas," I chose Three French Hens.... dressed in french maid uniforms.

Great ornie - not just stitched, but finished too ... you do much better than me, they have to languish in the finishing pile for at least a year before I think about finishing them LOL :D It looks great :D

I love the ornie, it's so cute! I would also love a copy of the book and happy to pay postage and copying if you are able to do so. It's so sad that Sisters and Best Friends are no longer in business:(

Very cute ornament and beautifully finished. I just love anything to do with the 12 days of Christmas. I was going to ask where I could get the whole set from but I notice that someone has said they are no longer in business so that is sad.

Would you share a bit more info about this freebie? I'd love to have the graph if you could tell where it's from. Thanks!
