Final of Four Christmas Stitchy Gifts

I like to think I saved the best for last!

Jinglebell Reindeer...My Way by Daffycat
Freebie found here
Fabric:  25 ct. Antique White Lugana
Fibre's:  DMC 801, 816, 3051, Blanc
Embellishments:  Mill Hill Seed Beads in red & white, MH Petite Seed Beads in black

My friend Sandra:) of Sandra Sews:) gave me a great suggestion on wrapping this ornament up for my stepdad:

I used a cute sheer red bag I had, put chocolate covered raisins in the bottom and attached the tag with the cute little reindeer and poem on it.  (The poem was turned into a tag thanks to my 12 year old son and his Microsoft Paint wizardry!!!)  Thanks Sandra for your suggestion!  You always have the best ideas and I always really appreciate all your help!

Here is a close up of the poem:

Have a very Happy New Year everyone!

Happy Stitching!

This is the funniest thing I've seen in a long time! I'm definitely stealing this idea for next Christmas (for office gifts).

Happy New Year!
