Christmas Pals Polar Bear - DUCJC 2016 Finish 27/31

Afternoon all!

Last night saw another finish from last year's January Challenge. This cute little polar bear has been completed just in time for the cold/snowy snap we are due for the next few days. He's my second finish of the year (the first being my Smalls SAL piece which I won't blog about until 27th January) and one which I wasn't expecting to pick up because, after finishing four out of the six Christmas Pals Ornaments at the end of last year, I thought I'd had enough of them. But something drew me towards him so here he is!

Here's how I left him (well, his border!) on 29th January last year:

And here he is all wrapped up for winter:

Stitched on 16ct Ice Blue aida 2 over 1
Stitch count 44 wide by 44 high
Started - 29th January 2016
Finished - 12th January 2017
Total stitching time - 13 hours 45 minutes
(estimated 13 hours)

There is no doubt I'll now be picking up the final Christmas Pals Ornaments in order to both finish off the set and cross another WIP off my list.

Happy stitching :)

He is a cutie, but then all those Christmas Pals are. I see you are almost finished with your DUCJC 2016, you should be done in no time!!
