The countdown continues

Hope your days are warm, safe, bitchy, stitchy, and fun.
 From book 80, changed red to 632, 422 for trim, 3820 for moon, no cheek color (that wasn't planned but this one will stay anemic).  Left off one star, the bottom border, and changed the moon face to a simple crescent.
 
I added a few more stitches to his beard  right under his nose.  This was on the unbleached linen that became bleached.  I'm very pleased with the result, and it goes well with the lighter pieces from book 88 which are the same size.  Really?  Are you sure?
  Both are marked as 32 count, but did it shrink a little after bleaching?  I'm going to continue stitching these series as quickly as time allows, because I will be getting bored real soon.
 
Enjoy your day..
thanks for visiting!!

Ohh that one is my favorite so far! I collect santas!

Christine said...

I love all of these - both the originals and the ones with your color choices. Thank you for sharing your progress as sometimes we (ME) can become too hung up on having to use the stated colors. You've proven differently and you've done it so well!!

Because of you, I am obsessed with these Santas! I thought I found #88 online last night only to find it was gone. boohoo.

Oh well, I will enjoy seeing yours which are all looking wonderful!

ps I started stitching the BOAF santas instead.

I love what you're doing with these PS Santas, Marly! I may have to shamelessly copy you on the blue one (although, I would probably leave in the gingerbread boy--I love those little guys). You are such a fast stitcher with these Santas!! Looking forward to seeing all of them lined up together...
