Christmas in July!

Wish we had the weather to go along with Christmas!  It's HOT in North Carolina right now!

My rotation interlude turned out to be a Christmas ornament, the 1990 Schooler Santa by Prairie Schooler.
It is stitched with DMC on 18ct putty khaki davos over one. I started stitching them around 2000, and decided to go back to the year my DH and I met in 1989 and make one a year onward as well. I am almost to the end of the oldies!  I will finish them all as ornies and will have a Schooler Santa tabletop tree at Christmas (along with our artificial tree...we have cats). This one I have dubbed the Wildlife Santa.
Now I get to go back to a large piece, Chatelaine's Holland Landscapes, to finally stitch the last of four tulip rows! At that point I will be 75% done on it. Think cool thoughts in this hot summer!

  5. I hope you are staying cool too. It's been terribly hot here in OH as well. Your Santa is cute, and I think wildlife Santa is appropriate. Can't wait to see your update on Holland!

  8. Thanks y'all! Heather, I thought of you with that squirrel...mutant one, seeing as he's almost as big as the raccoon! He's on the sheet with 1988 to 1991 Santas.
