Second Ornament Happy Dance

Seeing as the end of February is almost upon me I decided yesterday afternoon I should get a move on with my second ornament for the month (I'm really going to try stitch two a month this year I felt like I was scrambling to get enough done near the end of 2008). So I pulled out a freebie, some fabric and floss and got started. Once again a fairly quick stitch (seems to be my theme so far this year) and I finished it this afternoon.

Snowman's Quaker Christmas
Freebie
c2008 Midnight Stitching
Stitched on : 32ct Lambswool Linen
Stitched with : DMC & DMC colour variations

The Quaker design around the snowman was supposed to be in a shade of green, making it look more like leaves and berries, but I wanted something a little bolder. So I picked a beautiful shade of blue (guess what colour I like?) from my DMC colour variations, 4025. I'm now thinking when I get around to stitching Circles des Cirques that I might use this colour.

I'm not sure now if to pull Paradigm Lost back out or work a little bit on that mystery project. The sooner I get that done the sooner I can finish my projects!

Oh I have this freebie too and I like your color choices for it! I started C de C and gave it to a stitchy friend to finish. The black was driving me insane. I used a blue for it as well! LOL...good luck with yours if you do it.

Wow, you seem to follow through with your ornament stitching. Contrarily to me, sigh. But I will be on the lookout for some extra stitching time next month, then it'll be ornament stitching time.
