February Ornament & New Start

I devoted stitching time this week to my February ornament. I chose Roaming Reindeer by Blue Ribbon Designs. I love Belinda's designs, so this was a must do. I finished it similar to the model in the JCS ornament issue. The fabric it is laying on in the picture is the fabric on the back of it.
While I had finishing supplies out, I decided to finish my Winston also. I stitched him sometime last year. He is laying on the fabric that I backed him with.
Next, I am showing you my latest new start. I bought this probably a year ago (right after it was published), but just now am getting around to starting it. I hated to put it down the other day, but I knew I needed to work on the ornament.
I will now either do my March Word Play, or go back to the new start, or.......
maybe work on a WIP?!?!??!?!
Elmo went to the groomer the other day & oh my! He looks like a different dog now. So white & soft & nice!!!
I hope you are having a great week. To those in areas that the weather is not being so kind......stay safe!

Love the reindeer ornament, and Winston too. I have just discovered your blog and read back over all last year. I look forward to coming back to visit as we have similar tastes.

Congratulations on getting your February ornament stitched and finished, Shari! This one is on my list to be stitched sometime in 2013. Winston the snowman is a cutie! Elmo is very intent on whatever caught his eye!

Nice work, Shari. You`re doing well with the finished ornament each month plan. I did stitch an ornament in January,but didn't do the finishing. Maybe this month I'll stitch one and finish two! Or maybe I'll just stitch another one :-) Elmo is looking very handsome.

Nice stitching and finishing! I've thought about "finishing" some things....just haven't gotten around to doing it yet! I've been a bit under the weather for about 3 weeks. Just getting back to normal! Love it when my dog comes back from the groomer!!!!
