Leo and sun ornament

I participated in a Zodiac, sun or moon ornament swap. My swap partner wanted a Leo ornament and I knew she liked vintage. I have a few vintage magazines, one of them is this Ariadne dated June 15, 1967 with all Zodiac patterns.
I used 2 and 4 threads of stranded floss to stitch the Leo on Gingham.  
The edge is couched with knitting yarn.
I received a sun ornament for the same swap. This cheerful sun is made for me by Mary.
