Year of Whimsy - Jan Finished

I finished the January design out of the Year of Whimsy leaflet. I started him Day 1 for the DUCJC. I was really surprised how long he took (6 days) but there was a lot of color changes and the backstitching took me forever. I love how it looks now though! I thought for sure I would be done yesterday early and be able to pick up another piece but no luck. Instead of making him into a hanging ornament I'm going to stick him to cork board by my calendar. I think he looks cute that way!

Saturday I ran out and got the few floss I needed for the Spring Bell Pull design. Fred got the mail Saturday and my goodies arrived. So today I'm going to put the first stitches into it! I can't wait. Well we have school and I have some chores and then it will be started haha. I told my other pieces don't worry I'll be back to them soon (hopefully).

Hope everyone has a great week! I'm linking up to the Stitchery Link Party. I love seeing what others have been crafting lately. Stop on over and see and if you've been doing a project go ahead and share so others can enjoy it too.

  19. I love that little snowman. But I can see how he would be time consuming. There are so many little details.

    Thanks so much for linking up to last week's Stitchery Link Party and for linking back. Aloha hugs!
