I can share another pre-Christmas finish with you this morning : ) This pinkeep is from a Gettysburg Homestead pattern.
The majority of the charts in the next 2 photos are Prairie Schooler Santas. That stitching temptress Marly over at Samplers & Santas had been posting some of her PS Santa projects all along but the closer it got to Christmas the more she posted. Not just a Santa here or there, mind you, but a never-ending array of them filling boxes, mantel tops, garlands, trees, windows, etc. I was able to keep my distance at first. After all, Santas do not dominate my Christmas decor. Marly, however, would not give up. Like those pesky peckers that she has constantly peck-peck-pecking away at her house, Marly post-post-posted those blasted PS Santas until I couldn't resist them anymore. Feeling like a cheap tramp I armed myself with my husband's financial backing & rushed off to my favorite stitching supplier's site ... 1-2-3- Stitch ... & ordered every PS Santa chart I could find. Upon their arrival I just handed him the unopened package & said "since you paid for these you can wrap them up for me for Christmas if you want."
