Never in a Million Years

I never thought I would ever stitch this design. Never say never, especially when a friend is involved. Diane was thumbing through my JCS ornament issues one day and happened upon this design. She said that was one she really wanted me to stitch for her. My, oh my, let's just say this was not one of my favorites from the 2004 Issue. I'm gonna have lunch with her tomorrow, and will present the ornament to her. I have to say it was a fun stitch and worked up quickly. Now I just hope she likes it. What do you think? Do you know anyone else who has stitched this design? Kudos to Rae Iverson of Moss Creek Designs, Inc. for designing it. I used the recommended fibers and 28ct Platinum cashel.

It's kind of Scandinavian looking. Nice job! Enjoy your lunch tomorrow!

Hi Becky!
I have not seen that ornament stitched before. It does look Scandinavian. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving the great comment. Happy Stitching :)

I have a hard time stitching things I'm not especially attracted to so kudos to you for doing so! Very unusual design but it looks great.

This is lovely. Is it a sort of capricorn? What ever it is...I like it.

The ornament looks great! Not for me either and haven't seen anyone stitched that.

I hadn't seen this one stitched up either. It's great. And I think Cathy is right, it looks very Scandinavian.
