Some counted work

 I started Silver Bells.  It is one of the eight designs in Christmas Ornaments, Part I, by Jean Hilton.  Working on 18 count white canvas, I changed the threads.  The chart calls for red and green floss.  I switched to Entice green 217 and Silk Lame Braid red 08 so I would have sparkle!  Instead of DMC metallic I am using Kreinik #8 001.  I am not going to stitch the entire design either.  I want this to be a smaller ornament so I will only be doing part of the chart.  The design is the one in the photo below, top row, left one.
