My Snowman Ornament is done!

I have reached my last goal for January, and I am very happy about that. I just finished putting the bead on this little guy. I thought he spoke to not only the winter/ snowman scene, but he has a little Valentine in him too. I think he will be able to stay on my tree all the way thru February. I tried putting the stats on him on his picture, have to see whether I like that or not. Dunno.

Well, I think I am going to get an early start on my February L*K Christmas Spirit piece, "Stocking". I will post my February Goals next weekend. I won't be getting much stitching done then because we will be spending much of Saturday and Sunday at some friends house for our "Planning Weekend". At the start of each year there are three of us couples that get together and plan a weekend a month to do something. Whether it be camping or going to a cabin or sometimes just staying at one of our houses for the weekend, we try to set it up so that we don't run out of dates before we get to see each other. After we set these weekends up, we send the dates to our kids, and surprisingly many times they and their friends join us. I think that is just the cooolest thing!

Thanks for all your great comments! It is really exciting to see new ones each time I get on this site! Until next time, stay healthy, happy and stitchy!

Wow Beth! You are on a roll - congrats on all your finishes!
I love the reindeer and the snowman in the heart. I think that the Misty Blue background is just perfect for that one and I really like the idea of a winter-into-Valentine ornament. Both pretty and clever!
