Happy Friday! This week has flown by for me and it was a productive crafty week for me.
First from my last post I completed my Thanksgiving Cards and they are off in the mail today for our immediate family. Making the cards was really fun and made me want to create some more new designs!
Also this week I have been working on a very beautiful ornament. It is in the Medieval Santa series by Mill Hill and it is the Saxony Santa.
This was a very generous gift from my pal Meg at Committed Stitcher from her stash when I needed a needle because the kit I had brought with me was unfortunately missing its needle. Anyways I am grateful that she donated this kit to me and it is so pretty! There is quite a bit of beading on this design and for it being so small I have made some major mistakes that I have had to take out but I have really enjoyed stitching it.
Here is where I was when I stopped working on it sometime in January...
It is my first project stitching on a paper backing but so far so good. And here is where I am today on the design...
I just have a few more colors of beading to add and then his beard which looks a little tricky, and then I can finish it and add it to our tree this Christmas! This year I am already looking forward to the Holiday Season probably because we have snow already, and I am excited to make and get gifts together, and to see the joy of the season through my little girl's eyes.
