Christmas Ornament

I missed the class Jennie Wolter taught Calgary Guild of Needle & Fibre Arts recently called "Waste Not, Want Not Ornament", designed to use up leftover bits and pieces while teaching various stitches and a finishing technique..  Although I missed the class, I was fortunate enough to receive one of the class kits and this is the result.  The colours would not have been my first choice but now it is done I rather like it.
I got practice at various canvas stitches:  rhodes, crescent, blanket, satin, tent, jessica, smyrna, satin, tent, norwich and square cushion, some of which were new to me.  It was a fun little project and I will make some more of these if time allows.  Thanks Jennie!
