Redwork Chickadee and Christmas Ornaments

My holiday towel this year is a Redwork Chickadee on a Berry Branch .  The design is on a  27" x 28" flour sack towel.  Flour sack towels are great for embroidery  because you can see the pattern easily through the fabric for tracing  and the fabric is really nice to embroider on.  I have a new set of Christmas Holiday Ornaments .  It is a set of six with the snowman and peppermint chocolate featured here.  There is also a hound dog, a kitten in a stocking, polka dot mittens, and a cowboy snowman.    I liked the soft grey in the vine pattern of the fabric so I chose a medium grey floss to compliment the burgundy red, creamy white shade, and holiday green  for the designs.
