Another day, another ribbon

I finished framing the Scotch stitches in the window-pane check ribbons, using DMC floss #3731. The egg is starting to take on a more contemporary look, but that's okay with me. I like to mix different styles, and when you're dealing with Christmas ornaments, almost anything goes!

I moved on to the plaid vertical ribbon, using the same pinks from the floral ribbon but reversing the positioning of colors. The darker pink is on the inside of the plaid, highlighted by Kreinik #12 tapestry braid, with the lighter pink forming the edges of the ribbon. The green in the plaid is DMC floss #3816, one value darker than the green in the window-pane check and two values lighter than the edge of the center horizontal ribbon.

One more ribbon to go, and I'll have myself another ornament!

This is very pretty - and, again, as with the mini-stocking, you have used pink and green without making it look "sweet."

Looks lovely...I guess you've been totally hooked with the Mosaic Stitch!
