Aussie Santa Claus - August Ornie

Merry August Christmas!!

Before I post my August "Santa" picture, I just want to say thank you to Kaye for setting up the blog... this is going to be such fun being a part of a blog just for Christmas stitching all year round!!  My Christmas Tree will be loving all it's new decorations in December!

Ok... onto my Santa!  As I mentioned in my blog title I have stitched an "Aussie" Santa for this month's ornament.  I searched my chart and magazine stash for ages trying to find the right one and then all of a sudden I found this one in a pile of designs that I had put aside for filing (one day)....

So here he is.... Aussie Santa and friends!


This design was published in the Cross Stitch Crazy magazine issue #171 and is designed by Jenny Barton.  He was part of Jenny's "Santa's of the World" feature in that issue and I just couldn't resist him.

I have stitched him on plastic canvas and backed him with felt which I need to trim and finally finish once the glue has well and truly stuck!

Now I  have to start the process all over again to find next month's masterpiece!!


Til then, happy Christmas Stitching!
Hugs xx

He's adorable and very Aussie! I love the fact that we can all come together from all over the world and share our love for Xmas in this way; and show some different kinds of Xmas at the same time:)))

Love him! Santa with bare feet and legs is a new one for me. The kangaroo is really cute as well. He's a great finish.

Great choice! I'll have to find that magazine and check out the other Santas. I know it's got to be in my stash (somewhere).
