snow white finished!

I got LHN's Snow White finished up today:

This is stitched on an32ct Antique Blue ornament cut using B5200 DMC. I LOVE how it turned out! I did have to adjust the border ever so slightly due to my miscounting error and I decided to leave out the little flakes of snow in the upper section, but I think it still turned out pretty cute.

Then I decided to start my next project:

Sorry for the bad picture! This is supposed to be LK's Snowman 2010. I'm stitching it on a 32ct Dirty Linen Belfast ornament cut using DMC. I'm cutting it close on the upper and lower borders on this one, so I'm hoping I centered it correctly! Of course, now LK came out with the 6 Fat Men, so I have a feeling there will be more snowmen sneaking into my stitching WIP basket....

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

I was happily working away on my Snow White when I realized I miscounted by a row somewhere. Oops. Not exactly sure where it is, but figured it wouldn't be too bad. I'll just adjust the border somewhere if I need to. Hey, it's all about personalization, right?

Happy stitching!

more snow white

I have been stitching a little bit here and there on Snow White:

I'm loving how this is turning out on this fabric, but the picture doesn't do it justice. It's funny- usually I stitch for the seasons, but this year I just couldn't be more off! On that note, I just realized I haven't stitched any Christmas ornaments yet this year. Can you believe it?!? I think I may have to find some here soon. I know I have tons of patterns in my stash. I just still can;t believe summer is almost over. That went quick this year! Very much looking forward to the cooler weather and all of our fall decorations. Soon!
