It was a good weekend for International Hermit Stitching Weekend. Cold, snowy and definitely a stay-at-home-and-stitch weekend. I worked on one small project and finished it ... hooray! Before the weekend I had the top brown and word done only. From Carriage House Samplings:
I didn't use any of the designers threads (oops, and I see that I'm not actually finished, part of the wood on the bottom, right is missing, will fix that after I'm done here). The pattern called for a grey beard but I like Santa with a white one so I changed it. And because the white didn't show up well against the fabric, I darkened the sign with a half stitch. I also made his eyes brown and smaller. They were a little creepy ... big, dark and hollow ... kind of skull-like. His eyes are supposed to be green but I didn't like them green and/or was too lazy to find a good green thread.
This guy is destined to be a gift for either my nephew or my stepmom .... I haven't decided yet.
