As promised, I have a small "finish" to share with you today. Last year, right after Christmas, I started a new series of Christmas ornaments, cross-stitched on perforated paper. In January I completed the first Arctic Circle Santa, known as Greenland Santa, seen here at right. You can read what I wrote about him last year here. Greenland Santa is 4.75" by 3.25". These are sold in kit form, by Mill Hill; the kit contains everything needed for completion- pattern, perforated paper, threads, needles and beads. I have done many MH kits and have never had an issue; they are always generous with the materials, giving you more than enough floss and beads. Their pattern charts are always well done and easy to read.
Today I have the second in the series of three to show you - Nunavut Santa. I love his friend the polar bear! And his parka reminds me of my Hudson Bay parka - it is sooo warm on a bone chilling winter's day... Nunavut Santa is 4.75"h by 3.75"w. I have enjoyed working on these Santas- they've gotten me out of my November funk, and beginning to feel that Christmas spirit. Come back next Monday to meet Lapland Santa.
