Finally! I finished stitching the little gingerbread Cuckoo Clock by Gail Hendrix--and it took much longer than I thought! I underestimated the time involved in all those color changes. I'm very familiar with stitching small projects, but most of them have involved color blocks--a section of sky, or trees, or a building. This was fun, though, and worth the time and effort.
As you can see, I personalized the base with my initials and the date, as I think this little 3-D ornament will be a gift. I've only personalized something once, many years ago, when I stitched my own "Joy to the World" as a pillow for an alumnae auction at my college. If and when I do another one of these gingerbread pieces for myself, I'll be sure to make good use of the space allotted!
Onward and upward to another project!
