Santa arrived early!

The postman delivered a special treat on Halloween:  my Amanda Lawford stand-up Santa, all ready for the holidays!

This 15-inch-tall Santa was blog-stitched a year ago, but languished with other completed projects for lack of a bell to adorn the tassel of his hat.  I finally found the right size and sent him off to Needle Nicely ( in Vero Beach, Florida, for finishing.

His seam cording and velveteen back were perfectly matched to the DMC perle cotton background and he stands straight and tall on a level base.  It's a simple yet elegant finish--just the kind I like!  Thank you, Needle Nicely!

For Anne Bloom, looking for bells--email me at with your snail mail address. There are still 29 bells in the package I bought and you're welcome to as many as you need!

No trouble at all, Anne! I really don't need all these bells and you do! I bought them at Ben Franklin in Chatham, MA--perhaps not very accessible to you!
