Lizzie Kate Santa 2010 Finish




This is Lizzie Kate's Santa 2010 Socks and Underwear. It has taken me far too long to finish him but here he is! He is stitched with the called for Crescent color threads on 30 count confederate grey by Weeks. A few tiny changes that make him uniquely mine are that I didn't use the whisper thread for his beard and eyebrows. I have developed a healthy dislike for whisper thread! Also, Santa is supposed to have on black gloves-oops!  I also changed the color of the long row across the bottom. It is supposed to be white, but I was loving the red.  So red it became! Future plans for Santa include him being made into a cube for my Christmas display.  Several years ago I changed back to the traditional Christmas colors of red, white and green. So he will fit in quite perfectly!

As for other things going on, the kids are out of school! Yay! So glad for a few weeks respite from homework, projects and the like. My youngest didn't get up today until 1 pm! Oh, the life!  Next year, my son is a senior. I can't believe that. So, that will be exciting. I am slowly getting ready for my cruise, it's still a few months away-but I want to be ready! I also have been kitting more projects and thoroughly enjoying that. I have a couple of new starts to show you next. Anyway, I am off to stitch. No work today!  Be blessed my friends!

xoxo

This santa is FANTASTIC! I think a cube finish is going to be perfect for it.
