Santa ornament

This is Melissa Shirley Designs 247 that is a 4 inch round ornament on 18 count. All in basketweave:
I started with the face using three strands of Splendor 1098.  The shading is done with 3 strands of Splendor--2 of 1131 and 1 of the 1098.  The highlight in the checks and on the nose are worked with 3 strands of Splendor 1084.  The darker areas are Splendor 1085-3 ply, but only the right cheek is worked thus far.
