Christmas Pals Woolly-Hatted Snowman - DUCJC 2016 Finish 24/31

Good morning!

Another finish from my January starts. This is the second Christmas Pal by Dimensions.

I left him like this on 11th January:

And completed him yesterday:

Stitched on 16ct Ice Blue aida 2 over 1
Stitch count 44 wide by 44 high
Started - 11th January 2016
Finished - 26th November 2016
Total stitching time - 15 hours
(estimated 14 hours)

His eyes, mouth and the snowflakes required quite a lot of French Knots so I did think of using beads. But having decided they didn't all have to be neat and precise I ploughed my way through the French Knots quite quickly. I also changed the message on the sign from 'Peace' to 'Love' but may well change it to something else as I'm not entirely happy.

Now to work on the third one from this series. Can I finish the remaining four before the end of the year I wonder?

Keep stitching,
Rachel x

Congrats on the cute finish Rachael. As speedy as you are at stitching, I'm sure you'll have the done before Christmas and hanging on your tree.

Great work. I am sure you can complete the rest of the series. Just don't do anything else!
I love the row of french knots in his smile, they look just right for little coals.
