Done

I don't think I want to stitch any others from this leaflet.  On 35 count it's a nice size for a small tree.  The hanger is hemp cord that I twisted using the same method as for floss.  Wasn't sure it would work but it did and I like this heavier look more than a single strand.  Attaching to front or back hasn't been decided but I will probably use a dab of Tacky as I did to close the ornament.

Love your Saint Nick - your eyes must be much better than mine but I'm starting to stitch again but only on Aida so far. Have a nice Thanksgiving!

Great Santa and love the linen you have used. Cannot you make the hemp with a few stitches to the side of Santa?
Have a great day

And just look, with all of your experimenting with color changes and/or pattern, no pattern, etc., your ornament is great. A happy-looking Santa to help greet the holiday season. Ho! Ho! Ho! Happy Thanksgiving to you! Keep up the terrific work!
