A quick stitch


Earlier this year, our youngest son completed his graduate studies, a not-so-easy feat since he'd been holding down a full time job while attending school.  This proud Mama wanted to commemorate the event with an ornament, just as I'd done for both sons when they received their bachelor's degrees.

This time I decided to wing it and create a one-of-a-kind ornament.  Scouring the university website for the school logo and colors, I then sat down with graph paper and charted this design.

It's stitched with DMC #5 perle cotton 311 and Kreinik #12 tapestry braid 032 from my stash.  The whole process from graph paper to finished ornament took only a few days--a very good thing!
