First Friend

Prairie Schooler
From Santas and Snowmen Book #151
32 ct Sage Jobelan/DMC floss

Ta Da!  My snowman has his first friend.  :o)  I had such fun stitching this one and even enjoyed the finishing.  I finished this one exactly like Carol finished the snowman ornament she gave me.  I really like this series of ornaments as the colors are a bit brighter than some of the PS designs.   I just love the lantern in this one and the way Santa looks a bit like "Vanna White" with his arm posed to showcase the message at the top.  :o)  The red fabric in the background was used as the backing.

I have put Shores away until February (only a few days away, where DOES the time go?) and am working on a patriotic piece.  I would like to have enough patriotic ornaments to decorate a tree for the summer.
I hope you all have a great weekend jam packed with doing something you love to do!

Congratulations on the finish! I love this leaflet, too. So far I've stitched just one of them, with plans for all of them (of course!). Lovely finishing!

Wow! That was fast, Myra!! And it looks fabulous...I can't wait to see an entire tree filled with these little beauties. I'm really happy that the ornament I gave you provided some inspiration :)

I lol'ed at that "Vanna White" and I think I'll always remember it when I see this piece! :D And, of course you know I love that lantern, too! PS is the best! :D

The cord looks so good finished like that; I'm not sure how to do this type of finish but boy it looks great! Good work!
