Ornament from H-E-Double Hockey Sticks

Well Chrisanne has gone home but we had a great 24 hours of visiting and stitching. We stayed up until 2am Friday night stitching.. we just didn't notice time flying by.

This morning when we got up I decided I would take "a few hours" to stitch up an ornament. It arrived in the mail a few day's ago it's Juli's selection from the Ornament RR I'm in. Honestly I thought it would be a quickly. It wasn't! I had to re-do the left hand spiral 3 times! It was a wily thing but the ornament is finally done (and it was a pain to photograph as well!)... I can pick Noah's Sub back up for a day or two. I got Kathy's Band RR today so I'll look through my stuff and pick something to start in a couple of days.

Wow! That's one beautiful snowflake. Great job. I might have to stich a few of them.

That's lovely Dani - sometimes it's funny though - the things we think are simple are any thing but :)

What a neat ornament! Nice job! I'm glad to hear you and Chrisanne had some great quality stitching time. I was thinking of you! I spent most of today on the road.

Sounds like you had a great time! The ornament is very pretty, even if it was a pain!

It's always the ones we think are going to be quickies that turn out to be the right pains in the rump, isn't it. It's very pretty though. Well worth it.
