Winter Fun Snowmen Ornament – Joey

Meet Joey.

I know he’s not much to look at right now, but soon he will be the newest addition to my ornament collection.  He is the sibling of Rallie of the Winter Fun Snowmen series published in the December 2006 issue of Just Cross Stitch Magazine.

He is being stitched on 14-count perforated plastic using DMC colors.

He’s just a forehead at the moment, but he is coming together quickly.  I hope to get all 5 of the snowmen done before Christmas to hang on my tree.

 

Winter Fun Snowmen Ornaments – Rallie

Ornament fever continues!  I have enjoyed working on these small projects and thought I would continue with them.  It is nice to complete a project and experience that joy that comes with finishing something (however small it may be).

There are 5 charts in this series.   They are stitched on 14-count perforated plastic and will be backed with black felt.  They appeared in the December 2006 issue of Just Cross Stitch magazine.

I wanted to start with Rallie because I liked his hat.

Here is my progress after a few days.

Side note: I started this project because I liked his hat, then I went and stitched it in the wrong color!   What a dumbass!  The pattern calls for stitching it in a beautiful blue color (DMC# 311) but, for some reason, when I looked at the chart I saw DMC# 310 (black).  I didn’t realize my mistake until the whole thing was stitched!  But, to be fair, top hats are usually black and it didn’t appear weird to me at the time that I was stitching a black hat.  Oh well, I think it turned out okay.   I may end of gifting this one and restitching it in the correct color for my tree.  But, shhhhhh – don’t tell anyone.
