Satsuma Street: Partridge in a Pear Tree

I'm so excited to be participating this year!  I plan to work through Satsuma Street's 12 Days of Christmas over the next twelve months.



I'm doing these as individual ornaments, and plan to vary the Aida used between white and the three DMC Brights fabrics (blue, green and yellow).  Once they're done, I'm hoping to finish them banner style so they can hang from some evergreen garland over the holidays!

This first one started life in the car just before New Years weekend - we took a roadtrip out to Bethany Beach, DE to ring in 2017.  It was finished while watching a last Christmas movie (It's a Wonderful Life) before letting the holiday season go.
