Another ornament finished
Now that my nephew has been born and named, I've finished his birth/Christmas ornament.
This is Dragon Dreams' ornament from the 2012 JCS ornament issue. It is stitched over-one on 28-ct. Jazlyn. I substituted a hand-dyed green for the dragon's body (I think the chart called for a silk, if I remember correctly), and did little Rhodes squares in the corners. I tried beads, but they looked too chunky to me. I finished it with some fabric I received in an exchange (thank you, Dawn!). I was kind of kicking myself for not attaching the cording when I sewed the front and back together - duh - but attaching it to the front with buttons worked out ok, I guess.
