Another finish--no fooling!

This has been a pretty productive week so far! In finishing this ornament, I've met another 2009 resolution--to stitch a memento of one son's graduation before the other one completes his degree!

The university name and eagle mascot were stitched with Petite Very Velvet #V622--a shade of green actually closer to the little bead hanger at the top of the ornament, but which my scanner for some reason loves to turn a muddy brown. This was as close as I could come to the actual shade after some tweaking.

The graduation year was stitched in Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #002V and the snowflakes were worked in long stitches using Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #101.

Thanks, Gail Hendrix, for helping me make my son's next Christmas a little merrier!
