January Ornament SAL Finish

Oh if only I knew French so I could tell you the name of this piece - I don't, but it is from this page, and was fun to stitch up.  And so nice to have a finish done a whole hour and a half before the end of the month!

I will get it fully finished up into an ornie for Valentine's Day sometime soon, but now I will bask in the pleasure of being able to stitch again, and having gotten a piece (no matter how small) to its finish.  This is a major milestone for me.

January's Theme-a-licious SAL suggests stitching on anything with flowers or a garden, and the ornament mini-theme is a tree or a wreath.  I think this works!

Chart: Des arbres de vie - 2 (freebie)
