Memory Ornament for DH's Dad

I finished another memory ornament, this one is in memory of my DH's dad.
I chose to design pine bough's and pine cones for this one as his dad worked for the National Forest Service for many years and also had a logging business back in the 50's.

Before finishing.
Design: "In Loving Memory" (Mountain Rustic version)
Designer: Sandy In Montana
Stitched on 32ct. Raw Linen by Zweigart using DMC in 500, WDW in 1269 - Chestnut, GAST in 0110 - Dried Thyme and 1110 - Sable & Delica Beads in 127 - Gold Luster. Tied with dark brown 1/4" satin ribbon, twisted cord hanger made from DMC in 500 & 898, ends are Hem Stitched using two strands of DMC 898.
Overall finished size is 4.5" long by 4" around.
