Default Christmas Cross Stitch

Over the years I have done alot of cross stitching. These Old World Santas took me several to complete. By then I was a quilter, and joined them together in this wall hanging. I have been trying since last night to post them, and I believe that I have finally done the job. So, we shall see if this works. I'm sure sorry if some of you have been peeking at my previous attempts and only found blanks. This time I am hopeful. Thanks for peeking one more time. Hope you like them.

This is beautiful. I love the patterns of the Santa's -- where did you find them?

Wonderful cross stitching. I always wanted to make those Santas but never had enough patience.

Very, very nice. I can only imagine the work that has gone into these Santa's but all that work has sure been worth it. Your quilt looks stunning on your credenza and I know you must be very proud. Thank you for showing us your beautiful work!

I found these in a publication called "Stoney Creek" The quilting Santa was in the May/June 2000 issue. Volume 12, Number 3. I still happen to have that one. Hope this helps.

Those are beautiful. I enjoy cross stitching too. Do more hand applique now tho. I know the hours and months of work. Great job.
