Ornament of the Month 2020 - March

Welcome to the third Ornament of the Month for 2020! This month I not only had time to do the finishing for February but I also completely stitched and finished March! So I'll first show pictures of February and then I'll show you what I created for March.
And here it is - it looks *so* much nicer finished! (You can find the pattern here). However you are here for the March ornament so here it is:
The ornaments are actually on the same background but I struggled a bit to make the blue show up as its proper colour.
This month I used DMC 598 and Kreinik #4 Very Fine Braid 014 for the stitching. I used TOHO TR-11-23F Silver-Lined Frosted Aquamarine seedbeads for the beading. For the cord and tassel I used a combination of DMC 598 and craft thread as the craft thread was too dark and I didn't have enough DMC 598 to make both the cord and tassel. The two colours mixed worked out pretty well in the end.

Have a great weekend! I'll be back Tuesday with the next part of the Blackwork SAL!
