Blackbird Ornament


I stitched this ornament from the 2004 Just Cross Stitch ornament issue for a very dear friend. Knowing her fondness for Blackbird Designs, Christmas and crows, I thought this one was perfect for her. I tried a different finish for this one. I've seen this on various other blogs but had not tried it yet. I asked my Dad to cut a piece of wood for me and then I painted it black and varnished it. I mounted my stitched piece to some acid-free mat board and then glued it to the wood. I am pretty happy with how it turned out.
