HoE Santa for Carol

Carol let me know she has received the exchange piece I stitched for her and she's happy with it.  The subject for the Perpetual Ornament Exchange on HoE  for this round was Santa.  I chose to stitch an old design by Heartstrings, leaflet price $1.50.  It is stitched on a 32ct tea-dyed fabric and I used the DMC threads listed.  It was my first attempt at finishing a circle ornie.  I believe I can do it, I just have to find a more efficient way.  It turned out larger than I expected, but Carol says her Christmas tree can handle it! Here he is:

My FTT Stitch Red exchange is all packaged and ready to go.  Hopefully I'll get it mailed today.  Since yesterday was spent in the ER with my mom, I  wasn't able to get to the post office. I must say, it's a pretty design.  I'll post a photo as soon as my partner receives it.

I plan on putting the finishing stitches in on one of my WIP's this weekend.  It's PS's 2011 Limited Edition Santa.  I think I'll have this boy framed.  Our organist at church does framing, so I may be able to talk her into it.  We'll see.

Going to go back to bed.  My sleep schedule is turned upside down.  Have a great TGIF.

Love the Santa you made for Carol! Wonderful finishing Becky! Circles are a challenge for me also.
Hope all is well with your Mom.
Looking forward to seeing your finished PS Santa.
