Christmas clothing...kinda

Hello friends!

This month I stretched the theme a little.  I mean there is a stocking and Santa is wearing clothes.. that works right?

This was a really fun quick stitch.  It is Merry Motifs by Homespun Elegance from the 2011 Just Cross Stitch Ornament issue.  And please imagine it is sewn into a little triangle pillow with some sweet little buttons used to hold the ribbon on for a hanger.  Isn't it sweet?  :)

I used a linen scrap I had and Weeks, Gentle Art and Crescent Colors for the threads.


I am loving everyone's sweet clothing ornaments and have been adding to my wish list, A LOT!

See you next month!
