Stitching update Photos in no particular order

This was my exchange piece for HoE Halloween #1.  Carol S. was my partner. To me Halloween says Prairie Schooler. I changed the colors a little, at least I think I did!  It's been so so long, I can't remember.  Carol said she loved it, so I am pleased.
I have a friend at church I like to stitch for.  She is always so kind with her praise when I gift her.  I chose a PS santa this year.  Joan has traveled extensively, so I thought this fellow might be fitting to stitch for her.  I like him, and so did Joan!
Julianne P. and I do private exchanges through out the year.  Here is what she stitched for me for our Christmas exchange this year.  She did quite well!  I love PS and reindeer.  JP has such a knack for finishing.  She always surprises me.  Needless to say, I absolutely love this Santa.
My Mom likes nutcrackers, so I stitched this PS for her Christmas giftie this year.  Now, I have no idea what I was thinking when I cut the fabric.  When I got to the bottom, I had no room left!  Up against a deadline, I roughly sewed the bottom on the sewing machine.  From a distance, ie, on the tree, you really can't tell I boo-booed to badly! 

More to come later!

Every one is so nice! There's a PS Santa for everyone. We've all misjudged fabric cuts! And will probably do it again.

I love your ornies, Becky, both given and received :) Who doesn't love those PS Santas…and I personally think that the bottom of the Nutcracker Santa gives him character, and makes him unique…your Mom will love him :)
Have a great weekend

So many beautiful ornaments.
Julianne finishing is quite clever and looks great. She is truly a PS fan.
I too love PS ~ when you get a chance can you let me know what leaflet the Santa w/nutcracker is from? I love it...even with that boo-boo. :-)
