December Stitch Along update

I am working on Santa whenever I can, but sadly there is no way that he will be finished for Christmas this year. I can't stitch that fast. Here is where Santa was three weeks ago.

Now Santa's mitten is finished. 

I had to remove the scroll frame so that I can work on the cuff of his arm. There isn't enough fabric to keep it in the frame and keep it taut enough for my liking.

I hope you enjoyed the Virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange. You can see my post here along with the links to the other posters. 

A big "Thank you" to Avis at Sewing Beside the Sea for hosting this Stitch Along every three weeks and sending us the needed posting reminders.

  5. It's best not to rush. Enjoy the process. Will you continue with Santa until he's finished or move onto something different in the new year?

    1. I will finish Santa. I want to make sure this is completed for next year. I always have something else to work on at the same time though.

  6. Cathie: He is really taking shape, I really like this design, I have a SAanta sinilar that I may need to stitch next year.
    Merry Christmas
