The penguin is finished!

I did it! I was almost finished with the penguin when my son and his girlfriend were in flight to NY. I worked and worked on it until they arrived at our house at midnight. 
It wasn't done then, but with a couple of early mornings I finished all the stitching. On Saturday, I spent some time in my craft room basement and made it into a small pillow.
What do you think? 

I also finished my Prairie School Santas, but I can't show those until after Christmas. 

I am joining Kathy today for some Slow Sunday StitchingPop on over to her sight to see what other bloggers are up to. I don't think I will be doing any stitching today, because all I have is Baker Beach and it is currently sitting in my bedroom as my stitching spot is where all the present wrapping is being done and gifts being stored.   

Thanks for stopping by!

That is adorable! You have inspired me to pick up a cross stitch project for next Christmas. I figure I can get done in about a year! Have a Merry Christmas.
