February 11, 2017

What a gorgeous day! I went out today with my husband for a little while, tried the new Molten Chocolate Latte at Starbucks (YUM!) then got a call from Nancy asking if I wanted to go hang out with her. We went to the cross stitch shop and chose a frame for a finished project of Nancy's. Lunch at Olive Garden (Yum again!) and then shopping. I bought some new clothes and totally enjoyed myself. It was great to spend some sister time. 

My project today is another old one. It's from the January 1994 issue of For the Love of Cross Stitch magazine. It's also another Santa. I know why I've started all of these Santas. They're each unique and I love them all. Add in a reindeer on this project and a little verse and it's near perfect. I chose a gorgeous overdyed floss and started Santa's coat. Then I stalled and that was it. It got set aside for something else. Another one that needs to be added to the monthly rotation.

  1. I just love this pattern! If I hadn't done so many Santas in the past I would love to do this one...

  2. Very cool pattern! I hope you can sort out the materials to work on this in a different way since it is really an interesting design.

    1. I think I'll definitely get back to this after I finish some other projects. I'll just be starting with new fabric and floss and hoping it will work!
