Santa is stitched
and made up, on the 25hpi I use he is pretty small for a tree decoration, I have not added the hanging thread as yet, I have to decide how I will use him. The large blocks of colour made him boring to stitch, and doing white on white at this size almost did my eyes in.
A tip leave a thin panel along one boarder, so when you glue him together, he will fit better,
mine was very fiddly, I used Fray Check, Gold-Zack to ensure he stays neat.
He would be better stitched on 14 or 18 hpi.
I have been knitting, I wanted six more Christmas puddings for the tree, I love making these, they are so quick and look fun. I have finished knitting the other two,
I now need to cut the holly leaves from felt and add red beads.
My last harvest of the last sweet pepper, the plant was very kind to us this year.
Not done much in the garden, busy week here, but we had a bit of rain last night and the warm weather is allowing the flowers to stay longer.
I am stitching a few Christmas quickies, some for me some to pass on, I have seen some lovely designs in the net, and I am asking for help in identifying the piece below, I found it on Pintrest from a site in Russia, I have asked the author where the design can be found but I can not get an answer from her. This is so not me but I love it.
