Stuffed....Not Me, But Some Stitching

Good Morning!
Yesterday after work I had something to eat with some friends from work and then we Zumba'd. The teacher told me I was graceful!??? Lol. I am a sweaty mess at the end of class so it made me laugh.
When I got home I worked on finishing and stayed up past my bed time.



First I stuffed the snowman that Myra sewed up for me.



Here's the lovely fabric on the back.



Thanks Myra! You rock!
Then I did the finishing on this one for the Christmas All Year Long SAL.



This is #112 Holiday Sprinkles by Hob-Nobb Designs. It is stitched on mystery linen and I used limited edition GAST threads.



Here's the back.
I am hoping to stitch some on Marietta tonight. I may stash dive and look for next month's ornament.
Have a wonderful Thursday Friends!

Lovely finishes! I especially like the candy cane one! I had to smile, your couch has the same upholstry fabric as mine! :o)

Both are great! The snowman was winning my preference but I also love that star and the stitched back. I think it's a tie.

Two in one evening? Wow - great accomplishments! And they're nicely done, too.

Both finishes look lovely! Do you have any tips for bordering a piece with ric-rac? I've yet to attempt that but it always looks so pretty!

Great finishing job! I have two pillows I need to get around to... I should do that and stop ignoring them!

Great finishes! I love your ornie...it's cute! I've never seen it before and I like the back design. :)

Your finishes are just so pretty :)

Congrats on the finishes! I have that Hobb Nobb one somewhere floating in my stash. It's really cute; I should pull it out.

Remember after Zumba...you're not "sweaty"...you are "glowing" or possibly "glistening", LOL!

Your finishes look awesome, Chris. I've fallen back in doing the Christmas ornie SAL with my limited stitching. Ugh! Can't wait until this neck/shoulder/arm thing gets better.

Mr snowman looks great now that he is all fluffy. :o) Love how you finished your ornament. I always get impatient and don't take the time to make a pretty back for my ornies.
