Prairie Schooler Santa ornament

A little Christmas in July stitching, this one being the 1991 Schooler Santa from Prairie Schooler!
I'm stitching backward through them all to the year I met my DH, which was 20 years ago last weekend! Two more, and then I'll just stitch each new one as they come out every year. Eventually I'll finish them all as ornaments and they will have their own tree. If you had to finish 20 ornaments how would you do it? I have some nice backing fabric, but I'm not really looking forward to 20+ little pillow ornies. Suggestions welcome!

I have also been working on stash organization and clearing my hobby room of extraneous "stuff". Right now it's chaos as I have been putting everything into an Excel file (being a former librarian has it's advantages, and obsessions too!). All the charts and leaflets are done, and most of the kitted stuff....saving the magazines for last as they are a whole other "obsession"! I'm eventually going make a list of stash up for adoption, so stay tuned.
Not to worry, I'll leave time for stitching, or go crazy!


  1. Very cute! How can you need to organize - I thought you just did it? You are going to have the perfect room!

  2. Gorgeous Santa, Kathy! Lovely stitching, well done.

  3. Original idea; for every year a Santa. They are lovely.

  4. Your Santa looks fantastic! I love your idea of stitching one for every year you and hubby have been together!

  5. Glucuronolactone: No side effects have been reported, however, there is still debate on its
    candies, sugar, or sodas. The LeanIn this
    phase, you will be focusing are keys to success with
    any workout program, especially one as intense as P90 X.
