Prairie Schooler 98 Santa

So I am in a mad dash to get this done, it's the 1998 Santa by Prairie Schooler. I think it will make a perfect ornament, I'm making it for Eve and the kids.

And here is the after. I over stuffed it with balsam fir shavings, so that if she doesn't want it on the tree, she can use it in the car as an air freshener.

This is a lovely little french pattern, that I think will make a wonderful ornament. It's stitched on 28 count evenweave with 1 over 1 for most of it, some of the needles are 2 over 1. Click title for the link to the pattern.


This is a stocking that I thought I would add to the Christmas tree, it's 18 count aida 2 over 1.
