More Christmas Stitching

First, a big thank you to Marne, Erica and Jen who all nominated me for blogging awards. I hardly feel I deserve your kudos seeing as I have been largely absent from the old keyboard recently, but thank you all. I won’t nominate any blogs, but do check out my blogroll on my Wishlist page – there are tons and tons of really good blogs in there!

This weekend was the Christmas ornie SAL weekend with Leena. I started this ornament last month, but didn’t get around to finishing stitching it, so that was my job for this month, and here it is:


Design: ‘Santa’ by Knotted Tree Needleart from JCS 2007
Linen: 32ct ‘Natural’ by Permin/Wichelt
Floss: DMC, GAST, Carrie’s Creations, WDW – mainly as charted, some substitutions

Now, I’m busily finishing off a couple of exchanges, so I haven’t got much else to show you. I think that my busy Olympic-viewing schedule has also contributed to my lack of progress on many fronts, I just LOVE the Olympics, and although it’s quite a challenge to try to see our Canadian medals being won here on the British coverage; I’ve managed to see one or two, and shouted my head off during each race/fight. Hopefully more to come :)

In the meantime, happy stitching!

Cute Santa! The dude is always saying how much better British coverage of the Olympics is ("more international"). I'll have to let him know it's not so! ;)

Love Santa! I've been enjoying the CBUT coverage of the Olympics (instead of NBC!) I get to see lots of Canadians - and I've been impressed with some of the commercials, as well. They are most clever - again, you outscore the US on that front.

Cheers,
Marne

That is such a jolly, cute Santa!!

What a delightful santa. Sorry your not getting to see too many Canadian medals but lets be fair here it isn't like we Brits have this sort of success at every Olympics. It makes a change for us to be able to watch GB getting medals instead of other countries.

Ginnie said...

He's a cheery Santa. Yes the Olympics have been enjoyable to watch.

Wendy said...

CUTE, cute Santa! I think all Santas should be this round. Watching the Olympics has been so much fun, I'll be sorry when they are over.

Annemarie said...

Ah, Christmas ornaments... Just when I thought there was nothing more I could possibly want to stitch, you show us Christmas ornies. And such a gorgeous one at that.. ENjoy the stitching, and the Olympics!
