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.
I completed my February ornie early. It is from issue 44 of Cross Stitch Card Shop, a design by Debra Page. I stitched it on 28 count evenweave and it is approximately 2 x 4 inches in size. I will make a card with it later this year. Well on to find another design for March!! :)
My first ornament for 2009! Freebie design from Bent Creek called swirlygig. Stitched on my own hand dyed 28 ct monaco with DMC color variations #4215. Stitched by Laurie for Joan for the winter ornie exchange on the ASOE. link for design can be found on my blog.
Here is my Jan. ornament finish. I finished it Jan 31! I think my extra ornaments that I give away will be mittens. That could change ...just like this OHIO Winter weather! Have a great day stitching huggerz laurel
