Stitch along update

It is time once again to give you an update on my stitch along project. Those three weeks go by quickly, but I have made a whole lot of progress on my Santa stocking. This is where Santa was 3 weeks ago.

This is where I am as of yesterday.

 

Santa's beard is complete and so is one half of his mustache. Once I finish the other half of Santa's mustache and his eyebrows, I will go back to working on his hat.

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