Why don't you make some for our tree?

You can't blame 'em. Four perfectly nice ornaments out the door...where's ours? LOL... Since I was in the finishing mode I decided it wouldn't be a bad idea to finish off one for the home team. The stitching on this one was actually completed in 2003 - says so right on the edge there. This little guy was originally intended for my first ornament exchange sometime back in say 2000 or 2001. I abandonded it when it was taking way too long to complete this solidly stitched ornament with many color changes. He's from a Better Homes & Gardens Special Issue they used to put out every Christmas. Are they still doing that?
You know, I've got a good little stack of stitched ornaments, and every year I say I'm going to do a finishing day and get them done. Maybe I'll do it this year...

Love your ornament, gf. Glad you finally got him finished up. He's *so* much happier. Now you just need to finish up those other sad little ornaments... LOL :-D

Your ornie finish is gorgeous - I have to admit I'm guilty of letting projects linger in a pile unfinished for years ... but you have to admit this wee fella would be so much happier with some friends to play with on the tree ;P
