Christmas in July 2020

Hope your day is going well.

Some Christmas stitching today.
One ornament I have stitched last year and other ornament I started July first. It’s too hot here so the finish took me so long…till yesterday… well, almost finished…

It is the 2018 Santa by The Prairie Schooler.
Stitched on 40 count Moka Newcastle linen with the recommended DMC threads.

Santa by The Prairie Schooler from the book 48, A Christmas Visit.
Stitched on 40 count Vintage Country Mocha linen with the recommended DMC threads. I added some red beads by Mill Hill.

I had this idea for some time, but it was more for Halloween ornaments. Inspired by a finish that I saw a long time ago on a French cross stitch blog, here is my finish:

The ornaments will hang on the board, but I didn’t really like the red pins, I’m thinking more about some cork pins and there’s also a ribbon on the wreath missing… I hope you liked them!

Thank you so much for visiting! Be safe! Happy stitching!

  1. I love your Santa ornaments Lili! I especially love the red and white trim you used. Very, very nice!

  2. Lili, Both ornaments are finished so nicely and what a great idea to hang on a board with other embellishments. The background fabric is so pretty too, nice contrast to the ornaments. Have a lovely week.

    1. Thank you so much, Mary! The background fabric is a old piece from Andover fabrics. Have a lovely week too! 💗

  3. I love those Santas, they are so cute. But the finishing… WOW it is fantastic! It looks great Lili.

    Congrats on the great job lady!
