Monthly SAL - Ornie edition

Here is Pussies Willow a cute freebie by CEC, I have wanted to stitch this for ages. I've finished before Easter with it being egg shaped - but although I love it and was happy with it when I had finished stitching, finishing it into an ornie proved harder to keep the egg shape so its a bit skew wiff, but I think its still cute - might send it as a wee gift to a family member - can't say more than that. Its stitched on 32ct linen using SSS - Tandy for the background, Squirel gray by Dragonfloss for the pussies the rest is using DMC. Used a sheer voile ribbon for the hanger and the tails.

Wow, I love that egg, and what a great job of finishing! I know I Have that freebie in one of my endless notebooks of freebies. Sigh.... there must be a better way of storing them. Congrats on a beautiful finish. Love the colors!

Hey Su, as promised... Youhave been a busy little bee, haven't you, despite that sprained thumb? (Which sounds awful, by the way). I love your Pussies Willow! Nearly stitched it myself recently, but when I saw the chart it didn't really appeal to me. Now that I've seen yours, I'm starting to change my mind.
And what's all this about hot flushes, woman?
