Santa Ornament



I finished this ornament on November 12th, but couldn't show it until now. The design came from a book called, "100 Cross Stitch Ornaments" by Carol Siegel & Dimensions Design Studio. It was made for Lynne in Canada as part of the SNS2 ornament exchange. I stitched it over-one on 28ct linen with DMC threads, and finished it off with a string of pearls. It took me about 16 hours to stitch. Didn't it turn out nice?

This is the 5th project completed that goes toward my Project Challenge:

1. Therapy Bookmark
2. Cardinal Snowflake Ornament
3. Freedom
4. Yummy Gingerbread Man Ornament
