These are the ornanment I am doing for my two girls this year. Fiona's is the orange and pink in which I have tried Mandarin Floss for the first time. Have to say it feels very much like regular floss to me so I will not be spend the extra on it again. The tear drops are alternating between the Mandarin and a old Needle Nec. fine velour for the intersections in these I will be adding pink beads which if there are enough will also be used in the center chevons.
