Sew Advent SAL - Day 5, Christmas Ornament Finish

Good morning!  I'm off to a Christmas Luncheon today - can hardly wait, as we will have a White Elephant Gift Exchange.  Fun, food, friends - what more can one ask for?

Here's Day 5 of the iStitch Sew Advent SAL - still compensating for my goof, but it's still coming along nicely, don't you think?
Here's the ornament I finished for my step grandson (18 months old) - it's from Brookes Books,  part of the Advent Animals collection - Peter Polar Bear.  Instead of stitching a "2", I stitched "2014".
Here's the back:
A little gold charm at the top "Made with Love" and an iron-on label I signed.  The permanent marker bled a bit, but I think you can still read "Nana".

Off to dress for the luncheon!

Keep yourself surrounded by stitches ~ Cheers ~
