Ornament of the Month - August

Welcome to the 8th instalment of the Ornament of the Month. August's birthstone is Peridot - a rather interesting shade of green that was a challenge to find colours for, mostly because I first had to pick which shade of Peridot to try to emulate as the stone has several different green colourings.
The Legend is in the pattern this month, which you can find at the bottom of this page, as I have made a pdf file.
This is the larger 3" ornament made using the additional border found on the finishing page using 16ct antique white Aida in the colours listed in the pattern and size 11 seed beads and a glass flower bead.

The next pattern will be available on Friday 4th September.

If you have stitched the pattern I'd love to know about it (if I don't already) - I would appreciate you dropping by my personal blog: Magical's quilts and more... and posting a link to your photo or blog post in a comment on that month's ornament page, if available or the latest one if not, so I and everyone else can admire your work.
