February ornament and WIPocalypse update

I'm in the 2013 Ornament SAL, where we stitch a new ornament each month for any holiday.  My February ornament is Vinney Reindeer.  This chart is in the Nov/Dec 2009 issue of Just Cross Stitch magazine.
Vinney Reindeer - FINISHED!
"Vinney Reindeer"
Designed by Lynda Watkins & Angie Williams
Fresh Threads Studio
Started 1/14/2013, Finished 2/25/2013

The WIPocalypse theme this month is designs by Little House Needleworks, love/family, and stitching in red and white.  Singing the Blues is a LHN design and I finished stitching the white border using Anchor Marlitt floss, which is so slippery!
Singing the Blues update #6
Since my last WIPocalypse update in January, I finished Hummingbird by Teresa Wentzler and made some progress on several other WIPs that I started in 2012.
Hummingbird - FINISHED!
On Boo! Club by Lizzie*Kate, I finished Treats and Black Cat and started on Spiders.
Boo Club (Spiders)
I'm making very slow progress on Very Scary by Lizzie*Kate.  I'm using Weeks Dye Works overdyed floss for the first time and trying to stitch each X one at a time so the color changes in the floss look right.  I finished the leaf motif.
Very Scary (Part 1) update #2
I finished the second flower eye of the Day of the Dead skull from the Twisted Stitches book.
Day of the Dead update #4
You can see current pics of all of my WIPs on my WIPocalypse page. Remember to check in on Measi's blog with a link to your WIPocalypse update, too!

Well! Look at you go. While I love everything, I absolutely ADORE the deer!

Congrats on all your accomplishments. Do you think you could have a pep talk with my needle to get it all perked up and moving?

Wow! You have been a busy little stitcher :) That ornament is really cute. And way to go with your ornament a month. I always have grand plans to do this but never seem to follow through, but I sure do love looking at everyone else's work :)
