October TUSAL and more ornaments

First, Morticia.  She felt the usual pose was less than flattering to her figure, so I agreed to try something different for this month's picture...
Hopefully she's happier with this.

Progress on Santa's Helper.
I didn't have the wool for the sheep, so I just used DMC.  Since I'm hoping this gets used for many years to come,  Ithink I might have gone with regular floss anyway -- less fuzz to fall off/get matted down/whatever!

And a finished finish - Prairie Schooler's "Two by Two: Deer" from the 1998 JCS ornie issue.
The backing fabric is some funky trees, I used jute for the hanger and fussed around entirely too much attaching that teeny branch and pine cones!  But I like the end result.  This one will be a gift for my parents this Christmas.  They live out in the woods and my dad is a hunter, so this made me think of them!
