A couple of snowmen

No, we aren't getting snow here (but we are getting rain and we had sleet yesterday).

I stitched ornaments for the girlfriends for Christmas, but since we didn't exchange gifts until last week I haven't posted pictures of them yet.

He's a Flake by Little House Needleworks

I stitched it twice (well, if you count frogging, I probably stitched it at least 3 times!) I just made pin-keep style ornaments and the backing fabric is what you see behind them in the picture. I had planned to make one for myself, but that didn't happen. (though I do have the fabric and thread still kitted up, so maybe. . .)

I wonder how many posts Goggle reader will save before it replaces the '1000+' with 'give it up, you are never gonna catch up!'?

Those are too cute! I used to cross stitch years ago and it brought me such enjoyment.
By the way, what is frogging?

Sounds like you need to grab a cuppa or two and catch up on your reading! You might be missing my posts!!! LOL
