My Sunday Stitchy Update 07/21/19

Well here go, we have another week with TWO finishes!

They are small but every finish counts. This week I decided that I would start my Christmas ornaments for the year. YES you heard me right, I decided that I should do them during "Christmas in July" instead of trying to jam it all in during the last two weeks of December again! LOL

Every year the members of my family that I stitch ornaments for get the same theme. First up is my niece Abby and she gets reindeers or Rudolph.

First Stitch 07/16/19
Finished 07/19/19

It accompanies the piece I made for her last year. 

I guess I should look and see if I have some more of that same fabric to finish it with. Then I stitched up Jacob's penguin ornament for the year.

First Stitch 07/20/19
Finished 07/21/19

His mouth and cheeks look funny but a little bit better in person.

So that is two down and two to go, maybe three. I am thinking of stitching one up for Jacob's BFF. Wonder if I can find out her favorite theme without letting her know why or maybe I should just "assign" her something. Decisions, decisions...

Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching
see ya next week with another faithful update!
