I’ve made really good progress on this stitch this week. Here’s where I left off last night.
The edges look uneven but it’s just wrinkly because I took it out of the hoop for the photo. Let’s see – I’ve got a few stitches left to put in his beard, – add eyes and backstitch nose., add bag over his shoulder and add that second house. Can I get it done tonight – maybe but I once again was an insomniac last night so may end up falling asleep mid-stitching tonight. I was playing some serious floss-chicken tho. The green I’m using was not a new skein and it’s a good thing I decided to change the snowman color from green and not put all the single stitch green specks (which I think are supposed to look like snowflakes) around the houses because when I finished the smoke for the house on the left, I had exactly 4″ of floss left.
Of course while I work on completing this one tonight, I’ll be thinking about just what do I want to stitch next……
Beautiful stitching. This is such a classic prairie schooler design. I always enjoy seeing it.
Amazing how you finish another and think I’ll take a break but your fingers are itching for more stitching
Yes there is always a new fun stitch waiting and I cannot stand to just sit and do nothing – my hands have to always be busy.
So pretty! Wish I could stitch so quickly but neuropathy in my fingers leads to issues with holding the needle. But I still keep going. Just a little slower.
I don’t know that I actually stitch quickly – but since I am a night owl I do average about 5 hours of stitching time a night. I can sympathize with the neuropathy – I have it in one hand and it can be so annoying.
Love how your project is going! When I see a Santa like that I call it old school or old fashioned and I love them. I used to collect Santas and those are my favorite!
