Here's another ornament I finished yesterday. It's Smell My Feet by La D Da from Just Cross Stitch. I love 40-count linen. The stitches are so dainty. My eyes have just started having trouble seeing close up (I'm near sighted and soon to be 44 years old), so I guess I'll be needing some cheaters soon to work on 40 count.
The first one is called Wintertime Snowlady, and the second is called Christmas Dove. Cheryl gave me the Snowlady kit; it was looking for a home. I bought the dove when we were at ABC Stitch Therapy in Houston (one of my favorite places to order from, incidentally, and now they're a few hours' drive away).
Oh, Sarah Beth asked what kind of yarn I used for the scarf. I believe it was Caron Simply Soft. I find Red Heart yarn very scratchy. I may need to try wool or another material someday. Any recommendations?

Matt and Logan are both sick for Christmas, so we're a little subdued here. I'm taking the opportunity to relax and catch up on a few finishes. More posts soon.
