More stitching

Although I should be working on calisthenics costumes instead of cross stitching :-(

It's been in progress for a while, mainly because I haven't been doing much on it. I made a bit of a mistake when stitching it, and changed the feet so they were mirror images of each other, but apart from that it's stitched as the design calls for. This design was the subject for my cross stitch contest earlier on this blog, which Alex won. Here's the design details:

  • Name of the design - Technically it doesn't have a name but I've called it "Red Santa".
  • Leaflet is titled "Simply Red Ornaments" designed by Diane Arthurs for Imaginating Inc.
  • Fabric is a 28 count white opalescent from
  • Thread is a variegated DMC stranded cotton, number 115.
  • Stitch count is 58 x 65
  • Completed in July 2009.

Very pretty ... I really like the face ... it seems a simple thing, but so many faces on ornaments can be quite ugly and ruin the whole deal ... but yours is lovely.
