A Partridge in a Pear Tree cross stitched ornament

Hi everyone, here is my latest cross stitch finished, I just need to make it into a small pillow and trim it accordingly. I plan to make all Twelve of these ornaments to put on my tree next year.


Sometimes I like to stitch patterns with back stitch as I think it gives the design real definition and makes it look really pretty, I know this is small but there is quite a bit of work in it because of the colour changes .
I am not sure if I am going to trim this with beads or matching cord, mmmm decisions, decisions!
Edited: You can now see this design finished into a small ornament here
Thankyou to everyone who commented on my labels giveaway, I enjoyed making them.   
  
Until next time………
Happy stitching!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    I have not seen this pattern collection….it looks nice. They will be a great addition to your tree.

    That is gorgeous! Just when I think I like the more primitive, no back-stitching designs, I see something like this and start to swoon!

    I like this Partridge in the pear tree very much.
    He could also be a very nice cushion!

    Just lovely Lynn! I'm often amazed at how much time some smaller designs take! They can be so fiddly!

    Sweet! I made a partridge last year and give it away, so I will make a new one for myself, but first I want to finish 12 snowmen for my tree this year!
