Nothing to show on the stitching front, unfortunately. Between shoveling the snow last week, hurting my leg (probably from the afore mentioned snow shoveling), a sick beagle and shoveling more snow this week, I haven't gotten much stitching done. I did stitch on Rose Wreath Santa but no pictures to show. I'll try to remember to get a pic tonight -- hopefully I won't have much shoveling to do tonight, at least on the driveway. Having small dogs, I need to shovel paths in my backyard for the little critters to do their business.
But I digress .... I finished Santa's boots over the weekend. Now I have to do his pompom, the wreath, and the background. And I will have my 2010 Santa -- yippee.
Here's a pic of my very first Santa stitched in 1989 -- before I even knew I was going to begin a Santa collection. It was a kit -- I think from Dimensions. I don't have the pattern any more so cannot check on this. I'm not a big kit fan but I really like Norman Rockwell and I just love this one. Every time I look at all those busy little elves, I have to smile. I love all the little details Rockwell put in his work. The elf on Santa's knee pulling up the paint bucket is my favorite. I giggle every time I look at him. The 'supervisory' elf on Santa's shoulder is probably my second favorite. I guess with the boss asleep, someone has to take over -- right?? hehehehe .... I'll close on that note and wish everyone a happy December 14th!
