I have stitched three small projects this month. This one is the smallest - it fits into one of the little gold frames (just a tad over 2.5cm or 1" square) I've been using lately. A truly tiny finish.

My other two finishes are snowmen, which will be finished as Christmas ornaments to be given as Christmas gifts to English brothers, grandchildren of an old friend. I've not stitched many snowpeople, as I live in an area where snow just doesn't happen, and we don't associate snowpeople with Christmas in the way that is common in the northern hemisphere. It has been a pleasure to stitch this little pair, so I think I will stitch a third, for a young member of our extended family who lives in New York. The charts for these little snowmen came from BH&G's 101 Christmas Cross-Stitch Designs booklet, published in 1999. I changed the floss colours and some of the facial features.
Thanks for popping by.
