On the first day of Christmas...
Design: Day One (modified)
Designer/Source: monsterbubbles; Just Cross Stitch 2009 Christmas edition)
Fabric: 18 ct. Aida Color: oatmeal
Started: 21 Dec 2010
Finished: 21 Dec 2010 (@ 12 hours of work)
Size: 2¾" x 3½"
Purpose: Christmas ornament
Notes: I didn't like the pink and flesh colors for the partridge, so I changed the body/tail to 3031 and the breast to 931 and a 783/3829 blend; the eye is ecru; the beak is 721. The pear colors are unchanged, though I did move it closer to the partridge. Beads are left over lime and mauve from Shimmering Mermaid. For time's sake, I only did the partridge and pear, and freehanded the swirls from the border. The colors for the partridge looked better together on the bobbins; we'll see how the recipient likes the colors...
Finished off with self-adhesive felt backing.
