Another Finish

Good morning all,

Last night I finished the January Snowflake ornament designed by Loretta at Stitching the Night Away. Her chart is designed so that we can make our own fabric and thread choices. Many others have stitched this snowflake with such pretty colors.

I stitched this on 14ct cream Aida using DMC 3818 and 816. I love the way it came out but it is just a little too big to make into an ornament. I plan on finishing this as a box top to be put in my Christmas box as a possible gift this year. To who? I don't know. I plan on stitching this again in the near future on a smaller count fabric so that I can make an ornament out of it. This Christmas I plan on getting a second tree so that I may have one just for my stitching. So I better get started stitching up lots of ornaments so my tree is not bare hehehe.

I am working on putting the finishing touches on a late Christmas box for a friend I used to work with. I have not had the chance to see her since before her trip at Christmas. It will be nice to see her again.

It is raining again today which means that the world is very gray today. Will be turning on more lights so I can actually see.

Ta Ta for now,

Although I do not have an ornament tree I have seen them on other blogs and they look so pretty. I think you snowflake will make a perfcect box top.
