I stitched up the 2011 Prairie Schooler Santa, I do love those snowshoes. I used 35 count lambswool linen and I did fiddle with the colors just a little bit. As you can see I’ve also made a start on Santa’s Night also from Prairie Schooler.
I’ve wanted to stitch all the PS Santas since they first came out back in 1984. I have been collecting them since then but this is the first one I have stitched for myself. I think I would like to attempt to stitch one each month between now and Christmas. I have 2008 and the yellow one with the fish here with me so I could get started on another.
I’m stitching Santa’s Night on the called for 18 count black aida. I do have seven cuts of this in stock at the webshop which you can find here and will be running my special on the new Prairie Schoolers til the end of August.
I badly burned my index finger while cooking dinner tonight, luckily it wasn’t my finger tip but it hurts like crazy. I will always be more careful when steaming vegetables after this – ouch!
