Cheryl's Jolly Old St. Nicholas(es)

This month I added a Jolly St. Nick to my Christmas Sampler.  The chart is from Cross Stitcher Magazine Nov 2017.  I have been making good progress on the sampler and hope to finish stitching it by Christmas.

I thought it might be fun to have a little parade of Santas ... so here are a few more that I have stitched over the years:
This Santa was one of those little ornament kits stitched on 18 ct. aida.  He is one of my favorites.  I think he wants a hug!

This patriotic Santa was stitched on 14 ct plastic canvas.  The ornament is super sturdy, which is good because Santa has to hold all of those buttons in his beard.

This little Santa ornament was stitched from a free chart I found on a Japanese website.  The website is no longer there, but perhaps the chart is still floating around the web.  I really enjoyed stitching and assembling this Santa - I am always happy to find a use for some of my little embellishments.
I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my little jolly fellows.  Santa Claus will be here before you know it!

Mary's Jolly Old St. Nicholas

My November Jolly Old St. Nicholas is Little Santa from Bent Creek.
I substituted Wisper for the beard and trim and I think he looks very cozy! This is only 24 x 24 stitches so it comes in at just under 1 1/2" square! I was to find a tiny ornament frame (I think I have seen them at Michaels) and it will go on my tree in a few weeks!

Khristine's April White Christmas Ornament


Happy November!

I am still dealing with April :)

This is my pick for White Christmas.  I think I am losing touch with how big an ornament is but anyway this one turned out pretty cute.  It is a freebie from the blog Le Chalet Des Perelles called Noel 2013.

Now I am off to get stitching on my May ornament.


Suzanne's November Ornament

Happy November to everyone. I've completed my ornament from the Twelve Dragonlets of Christmas by Dragon Dreams - Eleven Dragons Piping. I can hear those bagpipes now!
See you all next month!
