Holiday Finish

I stitched these pieces over the holidays and throughout January and into February, but they've finally been opened by the recipients so I can show them here.
 I made this for my friends--it's their four grandchildren based on photos taken last summer.
 I also made them into separate ornaments for my friends' children's families to enjoy.
 A bit late for this holiday season but hopefully they'll be enjoyed for future holidays (if you look closely, the ground fabric has a holly pattern).
Set one is "the babies." The twins they just turned one year old!
And the boys in set two are brothers.

They are stitched using one strand of very dark green DMC floss and back stitch, outline stitch, and split stitch. I used TransferEase from Wooly Thread to transfer my scanned drawings to the fabric.
