Two Santas finished

Hello, dear blogging friends,

I am Brigitte and after joining Kaye's Prairie Schooler and Americana SAL blogs I thought why not join this one as well. I do not often stitch Christmas items but I have many JCS Ornament issues and have stitched nearly nothing from them. This has to change, lol.

But for this month's theme I chose Santas from other booklets. Here they are:


The little pillow shows a Santa from an Alma Lynne booklet, Folksy St. Nick. Can you believe that I had to pull out 24 different DMC and Anchor colours for him? The card shows a little Santa from an old Anchor leaflet and wasn't very difficult to stitch. Just perfect for a Christmas card.

Now on to looking for a pattern for the September theme.

The Alma Lynn was definitely worth all the different shades and colours.
Two lovely finishes this month. Good start!
