Icy inside day has advantages

LHN Ornament SAL Pear Tree
2010 Christmas Ornament Challenge
Cranberry Deer Pinkeep

January
It's snowing now. What can I say, rain, ice, snow, very wintry weather. I don't mind because

I'm not getting out. So, what's a stitcher to do besides stitch? Well, some finishing is in store. I think they both turned out pretty well, even though they are a little lopsided. No matter how hard i try, there's always a finishing imperfection. I decided to continue stitching a reindeer a month for the 2010 Ornament Challenge. A couple more days of fun stitching, then I must get busy on some exchange pieces. These are my deadlines, which I need in my life. Enjoy the rest of your day.

they are both beautiful! We aren't snowed in or iced in, but I am stuck in too! Why you ask??? We have our 7 month old triplet grandsons with us. I am NOT taking them out in this cold weather! So, while babies nap, grandma stitches!!!

MOST beautiful :)
We are preparing for the ice/snow here in my neck of the woods...believe me-SC is ill equipped for it-HOPING I don't lose my power-but I do have a generator if I do-but not sure I will be able to get online...but hopefully I can have some light to stitch by :)
STAY safe dear one :)

You can say the finishing has flaws, but I don't see them from here!

Looks like the pillow ornie is edged with charming beads. :D Love it!

Both finishes look great, but of
course you know I love the reindeer best! Glad to hear you are going to do one a month again.
We didn't get much ice/snow as predicted (yet!) but all around us
did. Stay well, warm & stitching!

Fabulous finishes! The reindeer ornament is lovely!!

Stitchin, reading and finishing are the most joyful things one can do when it's so nasty outside. It's the same here, just without the ice. We were shoveling snow 5 times yesterday, and this morning I spent nearly two hours shoveling again.
Your finishes look really great.
