Santa is coming

 I worked on Santa just a bit.  He still needs more beard, an outline and the word Noel with some red berries.  Then this one is done.

 My latest effort for a mail art is shown here.  We were assigned a 'not just cross stitch' theme.  I used a tea towel to make a pocketed purse as an envelope.  I did the embroidery.  Does it look like Lake George??? 
On the back, I used specialty stitches to fill in the colored bars and put a bird on the back.  This was all mailed to Finland and it arrived safe and sound so I can now show it off.

Beautiful mail art! And I love the over-one Santa. The shading is lovely!
