HoE Home state/town Christmas ornament

It was bound to happen.  When two stitching buddies belong to the same Exchange group, one of would get the others name to stitch for.  I got the draw this time.  Lynn was my partner.  I knew the design I was going to stitch even before I had my partners name.  It is an old design I've had for years and with some time between projects I went ahead and started on the ornament.  I was almost finished when I received her name. Decided to change Oklahoma to Okmulgee.  It's a little hard to decifer Okmulgee in the photo but I think it's clear enough for Lynn to read. 
I used the called for DMC threads and stitched it on a 28ct opalescent fabric, one of my favorites, and Lynn's too, so I belive I "did good."  You can't see it real well, but I trimmed the bow in gold thread.  Then added some more gold by trimming the ornament with gold beads and used gold wire as the hanger.  I may have to stitch one for myself!
Have a great week.
