Finally I finished a Christmas ornament. It took me a very long time and I can't understand why. I started this ornament at the end of August and it had to be the ornament for September. I finished it in November!!! Now I have to catch up with two ornaments, the ones for October and November. I decided to choose two Santas in the leaflet Kris Kringle #62 by Prairie Schooler. Those Santas are smaller than the yearly ones!

1996 Schooler Santa by Prairie Schooler stitched on Belfast linen 32ct, Rock Quarry (Silkweaver)

Reading Anne's blog and especially this post, I decided to organize a personal challenge. I really admire Anne because she's taking part in this project with 50 patterns but I couldn't do so and I decided to stitch 10 patterns already kitted up before purchasing new supplies and kit up other patterns.
My challenge starts today and before putting a new order I'll have to count ten finished patterns.

Happy stitching!

Did I miss out on commenting here? I did! Your Santa looks fantastic! I am trying to challenge myself to get more gifts done before I buy more stash... yet on the other hand, I know shops count on us to stay in business, so I remain uncertain about how to address the challenge myself :-)

It's the 1st site I see belonging to an Italian cross stitcher, and I'm very glad to find it. Thanks to the fact that you write it in English (Sadly I couldn't understand your web site).
If you enjoy to learn to know about a French cross stitcher and about my area, you're welcome on my site
My site is written both in English and French.
I'll come back to see you soon.
