My Amanda Lawford Santa is finally finished, after working on it for more than a year. It's by no means my first finish of 2015, but the other completed projects were for my Needlepoint Now column. This Santa is my very own, so he had to take a back seat from time to time so I could make a magazine deadline working someone else's canvas!
One small detail needs to be attended to before I can send him to a finisher: he needs a real bell dangling from the end of his cap. It's probably easier to find a jingle bell in November than it is in March, but I'll do a little hunting and hopefully find one soon. Then I need to decide on a finisher, one who knows the meaning of the word "simple" and resists the temptation to slap a bunch of bows on him and hide all my stitching.
I'm waiting for a canvas that I've ordered to arrive--another project that will take some time but one I'm really looking forward to. So stay tuned!
