Candy Cane Santa
I stitched this a couple of years ago but didn't get around to the finishing until October 2012. I thought it was such a charming canvas. Finished with a flat green silk back and green cording.
Wee little Nutcracker
Little nutcracker I stitched in three days - August 2009. I used pearl cotton, Kreinik metallics, dmc floss, overdyed floss from Weeks Dye Works and The Dye is Cast, Rainbow Gallery Impressions and Silk N Ivory. I finished it into an ornament in December 2009.
Snowman's New Scarf
I stitched this in November and December 2006. The scarf and hat are completely stitched in Rainbow Gallery Fuzzy Stuff.
Santa's Got a Brand New Purple Bag
I stitched this in November 2006. It took me a while because I've been busy and haven't had much stitching time! The beard alone took about three hours for all those french knots. :) I finished it as a standup with a flat base in December 2006. Backing fabric is blue velvet, cording is custom made.
