EAC Winter Ornament Exchange

Well, I actuallly finished something!  This is a little cross stitch Christmas ornament for the Embroiderers' Association of Canada (EAC) Winter Ornament Exchange.  This is the first year they have had this exchange and I love the idea.
This ornament is made from a pattern taken from one of Canada's Christmas series of stamps for 2013.  The stamps themselves were designed by Helene L'Heureux for Canada Post.The needlework on the stamps was created by Claire Belzil.
There are three stamps in the series:  the reindeer seen above, a Christmas tree, and a musical horn.  Patterns for all three will be in the next issue of Embroidery Canada as well as on the EAC website shortly.
If you are interested in reading more about these stamps, visit the Canada Post website.:
