First Finishes 2011

I took this picture of Buffy yesterday. She has been feeling kind of bad because of her allergies. She has been taking her meds and was up and about wanting to play. That is her favorite toy, all the stuffing torn out, we call it a skin. lol.
I have been stitching on a couple small projects. One is for an exchange which will go in the mail tomorrow.
The other one is a Christmas ornament for the 2011 Ornament A Month Challenge . I have so many ornaments that I want to stitch up but this one by Val's Stuff has been calling me.
I had the 25 Count Mushroom Lugana in my stash. I stitched it over one with DMC Floss. I wasn't sure if the snowmen were going to show up but after I finished stitching the first one I saw it was okay.
I made the twisted cord and added small gold jingle bells with a gold braid bow. The fabric is also a little more beige than in the picture.

I am stitching on Real Roses and hope to get the rose tree finished so that I can post progress tomorrow.
Best stitches to everyone.

Buffy sure is a cutie. They actually make toys with no stuffing called "Skinees". LOL Fabulous ornament finish - love the bells.

Cute design, and your finish is perfect for it! Hope Buffy feels better today.

Love the Ornament! Is the twisted cord hard to make? I just ordered the tool to make that for the ornies I just stitched. I'll tell you I'm a little nervous to try to do the cord though....

Can't wait to see the progress you have made on "Real Rose".

Buffy is so cute :) I do not have a dog myself, but when I see photos like this one, I always start to think... :) And your ornament is lovely! Love the finishing, too.
