Thirteenth Finish For 2009

And it's completely finished finished to boot! This is 2004 Snowman Ornament by Mount Forest FrameWorks -

Of course I had to change the date to 2009. No brainer there ;o) And I used 32 count Santa Suit by R&R Reproductions instead of the recommended 28 count so the flakes are a little more crowded than they're supposed to be.

I wasn't really happy with this one at first but now I really like him. He came with the hanger so it was a pretty quick finish once he was stitched up. Those are the projects I like ;o)

Will he be my last finish for 2009? I'm not sure. I've got two more small projects kitted up and I've already started one. I guess you'll just have to wait and see...

Yesterday and today I did a quick clean through of the house while listening to Christmas music. Yes, I was singing along but you don't want to hear me sing. Even DH will back me up on that one ;o) Some of the songs brought back some great memories though. I love Snoopy's Christmas (Snoopy vs. The Red Baron).

What are some of your favourites?

LOVE the snowman finish! I have to say in Xmas music my fav by far is O Holy Night by Josh Groban and for show it's Frosty the Snowman!

What a darling finish, Cathey! I love the fabric color, too.

Favorite Christmas music--well, I'm not sure if you're familiar with The Snowman (book and movie), but the music from it is so hauntingly lovely that I find myself humming all through the Christmas season...

May your Christmas be merry and bright :)

Love the dumpy snowman! Of course, at first glance I thought he had a stick of dynamite for a nose...

Very nice Pumpkin. I only made one ornament this season! It hasn't really been a stitchy year for me though, so I'm not surprised.
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas in your new home, and all the best to you in 2010!
