January Ornament!


I have my 3rd finish for the year. It is my SOCK MONKEY ornament. I loved stitching this little guy....so cheerful & happy!!! It makes me smile to look at him!
He is stitched on 32 ct. blue lugana...I don't know if it had a color name or not. I used DMC flosses for all of his colors.
To help me keep track of things this year, I am going to try to number my finishes as I go along on my blog this year. I also have a binder beside my computer that I am keeping track of what I stitch on each day, when I finish each particular project, etc....
This is in addition to my photo finish journal for my stitching. I am trying very hard to keep my stitching details more organized this year! I am sure that will fall by the wayside, as soon as the first time our little visitors show up!!!

This is a darling ornament! The color floss (flosses?) you used for the monkey is perfect. It looks just like the "real" ones. Great job on your third finish. Good luck with the journal, I am trying to set specific goals and ticking them off as I meet them. Will see how that works.

First of all congratulations on starting all 15 new projects. And on having finished the first of them, as I have just read in one of the last posts. I'm still a bit behind but will catch up on it this weekend.
Your new ornament looks so beautiful. Such a cute little sock monkey.

Way to go Shari! He sure is a cutie--reminds me of the sock monkey my oldest used to have when he was little. I like the ric-rak trim, too :)

Love your sock monkey
