Jingles the Penguin

Latest Finish 23.02.09, Jingles the Penguin - Click for a larger image! It felt kind of funny to be stitching a wintery penguin today here in West Texas Town as the temperature reached 80 degrees, but stitch (and finish) him I did.

Behold, "Jingles the Penguin" from the JCS 2007 Ornie issue! I didn't have all the floss and embellishments called for so Jingles doesn't have a button for a nose, a bell at the end of his Santa hat, or a fuzzy red scarf, but I think he is cute all the same.

Snowman for February...

Here's my ornament for February... still need to do the *finishing* ...

February Ornament

Happy February to you all.....This is all inspiring to keep stitching.

Another Finish

Sometimes I like to switch from the traditional colors to something soft and wintery.


I had this piece of Red Fabric left over and had to think of something to do with it! It will definitely hang on a door in December.
