The needlepoint Santa arrived recently arrived home from the needlepoint finisher. This is the perfect week to introduce him in his completed form. Some may remember that he was started this past summer. A few stitches in place.More progress was made mid-summer as Santa traveled on a mini-vacation.
Here he is finished and merrily resting on the mantle. Hopefully, later (after Christmas) I'll be able to take a photo with brighter lighting to better show stitching detail and my favorite sections.
Last week, Kathy of Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching, asked her followers if they had a favorite hand stitched project that they enjoyed each year. Although I have several favorites, this will be a newer favorite!
While joining others this Slow Sunday Stitching, I have a relaxing, no-thinking, hand project to work on during breaks from last-minute Christmas preparations. I'll be crocheting an edge around a fleece blanket for a charity project.
May you all have a blessed Christmas!
