Snow Bird Ornament

I finally stitched an ornament for my own Christmas tree! Well, actually... that is not true. I do have Lizzie Kate's Joy on my tree, which I stitched a couple of years ago... so, OK, I finally stitched my second ornament that I am actually keeping for Mike and I! I have wanted to do this one forever, and I love how it came out. The photo is the best I could get. It is dark out already, and I had all the lights on in the foyer and held as still as I could to get this...

I think that is a very, very sweet little bird! I am tempted to try that myself some time because of your post. :)

The snow bird ornament is lovely and a reminder that it's okay to stitch something for yourself once in a while!
