It's done!



I've been working on the Melissa Shirley Peppermint Stick Santa off and on for months and he is finally finished. I fell in love with him the minute Melissa launched him. He's pink what more could I want in a santa.

He is truly divine. He has crystals of several varieties, and lots of beads, and special candies on his back. I used a lot of different stitches and techniques. We all know my attention span (can we say, that of a gnat). I wanted to keep it exciting. I loved every minute of stitching him.

The photo isn't so great. New camera will be arriving next week, maybe my photography skills will improve with it. I'm not holding my breath though.

Santa is off to the finisher tomorrow. I'll post him again when he returns all finished and pretty. Karl will take that photo so we know it will be gorgeous!

I love him! Wish I could see him in person as I know the beads and crystals and silk don't show off their shine well in photographs. So maybe you'll have to loan him to me when he's back from the finisher?
