And there it is! It's actually much larger than I wanted so I'll probably use it as a hanging decoration instead of an ornament. (Most likely it'll be displayed during the holidays on that exact same hook. LOL) The pattern is 2006 Santa Ornament "From the Heart" by Homespun Elegance. It is stitched over two on 28 count linen with DMC threads. The linen color is 18th Century Brown. I covered the back in a matching tan flannel fabric and the trim is just Lion Brand yarn that I found at Wal-Mart, braided, and sewed on per the instructions on the pattern.
This is the fourth ornament I have stitched in 2009. If I can keep up this pace then we might end up with a Christmas tree decorated with lots of Christmas ornaments for the first time ever!
The other day, I finished one of my mother's gifts that I plan to give her for Mother's Day. I can't reveal it here because she is known to loiter here. Er, I mean...read here. Good thing I live over seven hours away from her or she'd just come over and steal it like she did my frog fob. *snort* ;-)
I've had a great lazy Saturday today and trust me, it's much needed. It's tax time and guess who's doing our taxes? Lucky me!!! Oh well, just remember -- if you hear a distant scream next week, it's probably me.
Now I'm off to work on Mother's Day gift #2. *hee hee*
