Dove Christmas ornament #2.

This one is prettier I think.




This was to try and catch the white-on-white.




A dark one to show the relief:



And one detail shot:




These are really fun to do! Now I have to reverse the pattern and try a couple of left facing birdies.  ( you guys may get really bored with seeing my doves. Just throw some tomatoes at me!)


Chain stitch, running stitch, cross-stitch, Forbidden knot, seed stitch, straight stitch, satin stitch and blanket stitch.

I love the gold! And personally, I think it's a lot of fun seeing how your different ones turn out. I'll be keeping an eye open for the next one!

I could never get tired of your doves, FairlightMuse -- your work is gorgeous!  This one is my fave too, so far.
