Ornie Progress

Up first is the Dragon Dreams ornament -
This is stitched over one on 28-ct. Jazlyn.  I used an over-dyed floss for the "2012" - everything else is as charted.  The corners are supposed to be stitched in gold metallic, but the idea of doing metallic over-one makes me twitch, so I'm trying to decide between some shade of yellow - and maybe an eyelet or Rhodes stitch? - or a bead or 2.  And of course I'll need to do the back.  Since the entire design is less than 2.5 inches square, I think I'll just repeat the border and then chart Ender's name and birthdate for the center.

And here is the Mosey 'N Me Santa.
This probably won't look much like the model picture at all when I'm done...I've swapped out most of the hand-dyed flosses because I didn't have them in my stash.  Santa's robe is supposed to be Taupe with Heirloom Gold for the trim - I'm using Roasted Marshmallow with Tarnished Gold.  Everything else (so far) is DMC.  And the fabric is a 32-ct. blue opalescent hand-dyed fabric - so sparkly!  The model used a natural linen, but I think this is cute too.

BEADS! *ahem* Sorry...I vote for beads in the corner of the dragon ornament. Your over-one looks awesome and I love the overdye you used. I need to stitch this one! Love the changes you made to the Mosey 'N Me Santa, too!
