June's Ornament

Today is reveal day for my June Ornament for the Ornament SAL - see link here
I wasn't sure how to finish this one and in the end simplicity prevailed -  a small cushion, a twisted cord hanger and a Christmas star for the dent in the middle.  The 28 count cashel linen and DMC threads all came from stash.
Tomorrow night the HD3QBEM and I are off to Rotorua for a couple of nights.   I plan on visiting the Hot Pools and getting some necessary warmth into aching bones.  
Hopefully the weather horoscope forecast will give fine weather even though the temperatures are around 12 degrees Celsius (=53 degrees Fahrenheit).   I'll be back on Sunday with a report - and a glimpse of the new toy I bought today!
