Isn't it GORGEOUS?! I love it....the lady that stitched this plotted her own colors and this is what she came up with....I think it is stupendous! So I got the pattern when I saw Dani had started this SAL up.....made copies, got my markers out and went to town coloring in my CdC. I've got a plan and I made my start....without further ado - Here it is!:
Stitched on 28 ct. Black evenweave 1 over 1...that's probably 5+ hours of work there
So what do you think??? I'm dying to know! My plan is to do all the outlines and the smaller circles in this rich gold color. The insides of the larger medallions only will be colored. I think that will make all those *pop* even more....the lady's that I fell in love with had all the circles even the small ones colored in, but I think that there will be more drama if I leave those all monochromatic and stick with the larger medallions. I also think that stitching it 1:1 is making it look very delicate.......so what do you think?

Thanks to Monique who posted to her blog about Sassy's and their ornament cuts....I thought WOW! I need to scoot over there and check them out for fabric for my Fair and Square squares. They have ornament cuts that are 6 x 6 and just perfect for ornies and well Fair and Square! So I purchased a load of them to try.
