Two finishes

I've got two finishes for this week. One is my July ornament for the ILCS Ornament SAL. I'm not real thrilled with the French knots, but I think they came out better with regular thread than they would have with the metallic thread as called for in the pattern. The other is Mill Hill's Root Beer Float. This kit was part of my Summer Exchange gift from Berly. It's my first Mill Hill kit. I think it came out pretty good, although it was the first time I've done both stitching and beads in the same project. That took some getting used to, but after a while it went pretty fast. :-)
