Comments: Well, it seems that Gay Ann wanted to give us a little test in order to find out if we had learned anything at all with our Mystery in a Corner so she had this little ornament for us to stitch in any colors that we wanted.

Since I had left over threads from Mystery in a Corner, I thought that I might as well used them, but this little design would look great in Christmassy colors too or any colors that someone wants to use.

I still had the same objective as I have had with Mystery in a Corner, still rooting for BLUE and fighting green at every corner.

I did the finishing of this little ornament using the book called Sandy's Finishing Touches.  I must say that I consider this book my finishing bible. I have other books on finishing but I always seem to go back to this one. I just feel comfortable with it.

(I love that bit of range with it. Makes it look alive)
