My Prairie Schooler Ornament

I promised you a picture of the ornament I sent to my exchange partner, Teresa; she has received it so I can share now. It is from the 2000 JCS Ornaments magazine, stiched on a moss green linen. As you can see, my scanner (left) does a much better job of capturing true colors than the camera (below).

But here it is, pictured on the backing fabric, finished into a little tree-shaped pillow with a cinnamon stick "trunk."
I have some more Prairie Schooler WiP's happening right now; Autumn Leaves and the 1992 Santa. I'll get some pictures made and post this week.

Lovely job Karen! I like the idea of the cinnamom stick. I'll try it soon. I wish you a blessed week. I began my first 2006 Xmas ornament yesterday and I'll show it on my site soon, but you already can see the ones of the previous year on my album "Christmas items" on http://bibleenbroderie.com.
Greetings from France.
