EAC Winter Ornament Exchange

EAC is having another Winter Ornament Exchange this year so of course I have to take part - just can't miss out on anything so fun!  Calgary Guild of Needle & Fibre Arts is hosting the exchange this year so we will get to see lots of the ornaments in person.
I picked up a Susan Portra kit at the thrift store awhile back and worked it up but got stalled on the finishing (of course!).  With the mailing deadline this week, I finally got motivated.  I used a bit of cardboard in the center to give it some oomph and then used buttonhole stitch to attach a blue wool felt backing to the canvas.  It turned out quite well and I am pleased with it.  Canvaswork is not something I have done a lot of and it was great fun!
