Two evenings--that's all this took--just two evenings!
After I got the center motif finished--and remembered how much I despise working with Frosty Rays--this was a delight to stitch.
I was thinking about going ahead and finish-finishing, but then I came to my senses. I have seven more ornaments in this series, and it makes a whole lot more sense to wait until I get a few more stitched. Then I could do an assembly line finish of a bunch of them at one time.
(And this is absolutely not a way to avoid finish-finishing. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.)
