Finish: Noel Ornament

I'm about to head away from the computer for an afternoon of cleaning and other domestic fun (hah!) - but this morning, I did this nice, quick blackwork ornament (I'm trying to keep to a goal of getting Christmas ornaments done throughout the year so they don't all crash in on me in November).  This is a complimentary chart from Glory Bee Designs (2005 - I'm not sure if it's still available).  I used 28ct white evenweave and Weeks Dye Works #4139 (Bethlehem). 

I really like the way the overdyed thread looks done in blackwork, and this worked up really, really fast.  I think I'm going to be doing more with blackwork this year.
