Last week if you recall I had started working on the last ornament in the 12 Days of Christmas series, but I needed to stop to get my family's annual ornaments for the tree started and finished!
I started with this one because it has to go out in the mail.
Funny thing about this ornament. I just "glanced" at the pattern and was thinking it was a Reindeer, ha ha it's not! My daughter pointed out that it is a MOOSE! So I said that's ok, it is a cute moose and went on. Then while stitching his antlers, I noticed that is a snake on his head and NOT garland like I thought. Oh WOW, now what should I do?!?! So I cut a few stitches off of the snake to make it look more like garland. I hope I was successful because I was over halfway finished at that point. LOL That will teach me to read EVERYTHING next time I get ready to stitch a pattern; after all this was called "Moose with a snake" (I renamed it) which would have solved ALL my stitching problems up front if I would have just paid attention.
Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching
see ya next week with another faithful update!
