LHN Winter Sheep

I finished stitching LHN's Winter Sheep ornament. I chose to use the suggestion from the pattern to switch the red to blue and the cardinal button to a bluebird button. I used all recommended floss colors except the blue is Carrie's Creation Antique Slate floss. My Christmas decoration colors are in shades of blue so I love how this turned out. It's stitched on 30 ct WDW Straw linen.

I love the change you made in the colors! My dd just picked up this pattern yesterday. The red on it wasn't my favorite, but now I think I might have to borrow it and stitch it!!

I love the change to blue Renee! Seeing yours made up my mind about how to do mine. I just love all the
trail blazers I can follow...I very seldom make changes unless to a different shade of the same color.
