Santas are everywhere here at Teacup Lane!
I worked his beard in white pom pom yarn!
And his buddy…
For his beard I added three chains between each single crochet.
Two are better than one...
And finally this Santa…
I've had this Christmas Santa fabric panel for years!
I started free motion quilting it last year.
I was hoping to finish it in time for Christmas this year but I don't think it will happen.
But it should be ready by next Christmas!
I used my recently purchased beading foot to attach a string of red beads on Santa's reins.
I didn't have enough to do all of his reins so I will have to make trip to the sewing/ craft store to buy more beads.
I have more Santas coming!
Remember when I machine embroidered pillowcases this year in redwork?
This is the Santa one.
These will be put out on our bed next week.
I found a delightful free crochet pattern called Country Christmas Doily that I'm working on now.
You are suppose to work it in 100% cotton THREAD with a small steel hook.
I tried…I really did…but I can't handle small hooks and thread.
Luckily I found some thinner cotton yarns in my stash that are a joy to crochet with and I can't wait to share this Christmas project with you!
All this R.E.D. is making me happy!
