Santa's at the finisher

I know it's been a long time but finally, I have something to blog about. Santa Sampler from Kirsten in OZ (the editer of The Gift of Stitching Magazine) is stitched and on his way to becoming a box pillow for my son, DIL and four grandkids in NY State.

He is stitched on cream 18 count Aida with Threadworx Flame, an overdyed red.

He has been travelling with me to Wisconsin, Indiana and NYC because since he is all one thread, he was easily managed on airplains and in airports.

He is roughly 5" x 7" and with the inch or so that Pat plans to leave around him, he will be a decent sized "throw" pillow to sit among the myriad of Santas that my DIL has on her love seat at Christmas time.

Now it's time to get back to Mary Wigham and the House in the Woods Samplers that I put aside in order to get Santa ready for the Holidays.

I'll post new photos of them as soon as I get the camera ready.

Take care...............Grandma
