THE SURPRISE IS REVEALED

Last week I showed a few sneak peek shots of a needlepoint ornament I completed in a finishing class I took in Savannah at the French Knot.

Since the ornament is christmas related - I wanted to make sure the recipient was able to enjoy it during the holiday season.

With no further delay here is Kris' Kats

I am SOOOOO proud of the finishing on this ornament.  I wish I was a better photographer and if I used a real camera instead of my handy IPhone I would probably get better results.  Anyway - you can see the previous post if you missed it for details close up on the details of the ornament.

Two of these sweet kitties appear in Kris' current avatar - the little tortie Maize placing the star on top of the tree and the silver striped all male Curtis Willis.  The black one on the bottom and the Siamese have gone on to the rainbow bridge but I knew them both.  This ornament just jumped into my hands last year when I attended the finishing class at French Knot.  I knew DF Kris would love it and I was not disappointed in her reaction.  I do think she loves seeing the kids in this whimsical colorful ornament.

Thanks for all your kind comments in the previous post - I'm glad I could do the reveal sooner rather than later.

Hope you are all enjoying sights and sounds of the season.  Cheers !

It is such a wonderful ornament, both the design, and the finishing. The finishing looks like professional work. Those little dangles (lights?) on the bottom -- I'm in love! I know your friend must just love it!
