Like a hole in the head

That's how much I needed another WIP, but I just couldn't help myself! There is a Nora Corbett design called Peace Doves Ornament in the Craftway's book "A Cross-Stitch Christmas: Treasured Memories", which I've never seen stitched up outside of the book picture:

When I was leafing through this book at the LNS, I saw this design and thought it looked like a Nora design; sure enough, it is! A few days ago, in the Mira group on Facebook, someone wanted to see a picture of this one, so I got the book out and took the picture shown above. I had actually kitted this one up a few years ago, so I dug through some boxes and bags until I found the supplies, and then started it. I had finished a model on Monday, so I have some me-stitching time until the next one arrives; here's what I have so far:

I'm hoping to have it pretty much finished by the end of the weekend, assuming I get plenty of stitching time.

Hope everyone else has a great stitchy weekend, as well!
