Snowman and new project!

OK I cut out the snowman and it went relatively well I *cough* only cut the back stitching twice and had to fix two spots. Guess that's not to bad! its not fully done yet. I've been to sick as of late to get to a store and I need glue to finish it! So its sitting here waiting for the finishing touches but here is a picture of it pretending that the parrot is already glued on!

I've started on a new project which will be Christmas presents. I know bit early to be doing it but I would like to get them done as fast as I can, because I know I am a bit slow at working on things and my goal is 13 ornaments. So that could take me a while.

Below is a picture of the kit.

 And here is what I've done so far since Sunday. I am really liking the bow so far though working with the gold thread sucks! It keeps bunching up and doesn't want to be tight. I've never worked with that type of thread before and I'll just have to learn.

Yay stitching done!

OK so my Snowman ornament is getting there with getting finished all of the stitching is now done all I have left is cutting it out... which I'm a little nervous about doing will see how it goes! I hope I don't ruin it when I cut it out!

Close up of the parrot who after he gets cut out is glued to the Snowman's shoulder.

Snowman ornament

Figured I'd post an update on my Snowman Ornament. I haven't gotten that far on the back stitching this one is taking me a while. The back stitching seems more complicated then ones I've done in the past, but it is definitely is making a huge difference!
