Finish Forty-Seven

On Saturday night I finished putting this cutie together :o) This is Remember Your Mittens by San Man Originals -

Again, I did some changes to the backstitching. I replaced all the colors, except the nose, with just regular DMC 310. I thought that since the snowmen in the fabric were outlined in black, it would make the pattern pop out more and I'm happy with the results. I changed the color of the orange nose from DMC 3340 to DMC 3853 as well.

His little tuck came with the pattern and it's got a wire hanger. For now I have him hanging off my Ott-Lite along with another special something :o)

I SURVIVED!!!! Okay, I'm going to 'publicly' admit that the root canal wasn't-that-bad ;o) Apart from being up most of the night, downing Tylenol 3s and muscle relaxants, it was pretty much like having a filling done. Easy peasy! My gum is a bit tender but I came through it in one piece and I conquered another one of my fears. Now if I could just get rid of this awful sore throat, I'd be laughing ;o)

Great finish! DH agrees that having an abscessed tooth is much worse than the procedure to fix it.

Glad everything went well at the dentist's! I never had any pain//discomfort from my root canal, but did have an allergic reaction to the stuff they clean the canal with...my poor face puffed up like a balloon. But I survived!

Love your latest finish, so timely on this cold and wintery day!

So cute! Great job.

Hope you're feeling better soon. Even though you're sore now and getting a root canal sucks, it's worth it to be pain free after a few days. Hang in there and rest up!

Mittens is adorable, you have done some super cute designs this year for Christmas. I'm really enjoying seeing what pops up next as a finish in your posts. I now have Cocoa in my stash as a to do, but need to finish Ready Santa first. Glad your root canal went better than expected. Hopefully you are feeling totally better from everything soon.
