Meet Williamsburg Santa and a few other projects

Well, he is done.  Ready for cutting and some felt on back with a hanger and he is ready for the Christmas tree.  I am quite proud of him.

Next up was part 5? of the hardanger piece.  This was putting eyelet stitches all around the outside edge of the piece.

Just a few moments ago, I finished part 6? of the same project.  This time they called for cable stitches surrounding various parts of the piece.  I do love the cable stitch.

For comic relief, I started another Christmas piece.  This is the beginning of Little House Needleworks' Silent Night.  This has quite a bit of solid stitching to get through.

As you can see I have been busy with stitching.  Life does continue.  I was called to Grand Jury duty and I was very lucky to be dismissed with full credit and no other visits from me.  Between that and several other things going on at the house, I have certainly been busy.  Today I even shoveled as we had quite a bit of 'no snow' to clear off the walk.  The turkeys and deer keep me company.

Beautiful stitching. I LOVE Santa's beard!!
The Hardanger piece is amazing. I love how they look, but I'm not brave enough to try one yet.

The Santa turned out wonderful. The Hardanger piece just keeps getting better. And a new start? You are having a good Jaunuary of Stitching.

Santa looks so cute with the beard! Congrats on the finish. You certainly do a LOT of different hardanger stitches--and do them quite well! Gorgeous tablecloth so far! It is thundering here as it rains! I don't get it!! Hugs!
