I finished the ornie, never touched the Santa.
Considering that I didn't have a single stitch in the ornament until Friday evening, I think my hermitting went okay. And here it is, a Christmas tree freebie from Aliolka:
Isn't this the cutest little tree? It's so whimisical and fun. It reminds me of something out of Dr. Seuss's 'The Grinch' (my favorite Christmas program). I love the way it turned out. It's a good thing it's going to a really good friend. Otherwise, I might be inclined to keep it.
And I am done with my gift stitching! WooHoo!!
Note to self: Don't wait until mid-November to begin Christmas gifts .... duh! obviously! never again!
