Come visit with me as I stitch and craft my way from one Christmas to the next - I like to have Christmas projects close by me all year. I have a particular fondness for Santas and Angels. If you have the time, leave a comment so I know you've visited.

A Christmas Welcome

Here's my latest finish - I will have it custom framed.  I stitched it for the 'new' Santa I got for my birthday.  He's seen quite a few Christmasses, but he's new to me.  He is an impressive Santa - way taller than me.  He is over 1.85 m (6') tall.  He will be holding this "welcome" to greet Christmas visitors to my home this December.  I would put in a picture of him, but I can't get a good enough one.  At present he is standing in my craft room, getting ready for Christmas, and I can't get far enough away to get a good clear pic.  I used letters from "Christmas Alphabet" by Barbara Christopher, from Leisure Arts Magazine December 1992.  I totally changed the C and both E's, changed all the floss shades, and added blending filament and  the little angel. It measures 30 cm (12") long.
