Christmas Ornament 1 Day 2

I had quite a bit of time yesterday to work on this. I ran into town for my flu shot and when I got back, I parked myself on my sofa and stitched on this for the rest of the day:

Christmas 1

I've always had a little trouble with Winter themed blocks. I'm not very creative when it comes to Winter, probably because I really can't stand the season. Snow, cold, wind and freezing rain are not my idea of a good time. Previous Winter themed blocks have come out looking like a blizzard due to the addition of too many snowflake buttons so I'm trying to avoid that on this one. I will add a few snowflake buttons. I have some really pretty ones. But I'll wait until everything else done and then just add a one here and there.

Just for fun, here's a photo of my black cat Nightmare.


He has his name for a reason! I took this early this morning. It's one of the rare moments that he's not bouncing off my walls! He likes to lay on a pillow under my stitching lamp. My cats aren't spoiled or anything, are they?!!!

Ok, I'm off to sew up my Thanksgiving Doorknockers and a maybe a few other things as well!
