The Pale Blue Santa has a face!

Here it is.

Pale Blue Santa
So far this week I have managed to complete all the cross stitching on him. Last night I started the backstitch. I still have two more evenings to go on this so it will be interesting to see how much further I get.

My Mum and Dad have come to stay for a few days and my Mum brought me this:


From The Cross-Eyed Cricket the chart is called 'Open House' and I have to say I am tempted to drop everything and start it tonight as I have all the DMC floss needed and some suitable linen. Anyway the decision has been made. After next week the rotation stops and I'm just going to do spooky stuff for the whole of October!

I'm so glad to see Santa back I always miss him and occasionally wonder if he has landed in the UFO box, that;s when I remember you have a rotation system--I keep trying that but end up just doing what I feel like on any particular day.

Like the Halloween piece I hope you have resisted temptation and are still Santa-ing. Happy stitching to you, Jen.

Your santas are looking fabulous, inspiring me to pick up The Spirit Of Santa.

The Santa is great stitching.
I saw this house on another blog and it is soooooo cute. I am sure you will enjoy stitching it and it will be great for the holidays or any other time too.

Your Santa is gorgeous! Love the Open House, too. I need to get in gear and do some Seasonal stitching!!

I have the companion piece to Open House and I'm so glad I waited to stitch it! Now I can find a cool piece of fabby for both. :) I'll be anxious to see your progress.

I Love your Blue Santa! Where can I get one to cross stitch? I collect Blue Santa's. This would be awesome.
