First Finish for 2009 + Current List

The Snowman is finished and I'm really quite pleased with him. I changed his mouth, since I just didn't like how it was before. I really like the beads for the flakes. They stand out so much nicer. Now all I need to do is wash and press it, and then finish it off.

I've updated my lists for this year, and am ready to start working from them. As you can see, I won't be hurting for any new stash. I may want some, but as I said before, I don't NEED it.
