2014 Christmas Ornament SAL ~ January

My first finish of the year! I have every issue of JUST CROSS STITCH's Special Issue of Christmas Ornaments since 2000 and some issues since 1989, yet I'd never done any of those ornaments. So my challenge with this SAL is to cross stitch an ornament every month using patterns found in these magazines. I found this pattern from the 2010 issue, and it's called "Consumed By Gifts" by Brittercup Designs. It's on page 86. The ornament is stitched on a pale green 18-count Aida and trimmed with blue twist cord by Simplicity. The bow ribbon comes from my salvage collection of ribbons (my SIL often wraps gifts very elaborately…fancy ribbons and all).
