Melissa Shirley Valentine House and Santa in the Moonlight

Santa in the Moonlight has all his fur now
Marguerite finished Melissa Shirley's Valentine House.  It is spectacular.  I can't wait to see it finished.

Dig the hairdo!

P.S.  She finished the roof months ago and it is at her house.

So close!

Orange Santa by Princess and Me
All done but his face.  I don't have the right color floss.  Isn't he cute?

Fun background stitch is done!

On Saturday I stitched the rest of the background and the boots.  On to the pony stick.

Stars or Flowers?

Is that a flower or a star?

I stitched the stars using the Howland Star diagram.  I think they could pass for flowers or even starfish but look pretty cute.  I think I will keep them.  On to the moon.

Day Three
The coat is stitched in reverse scotch using Anchor floss and six strands of Accentuate.  Pretty cute.

Shhh...for my neighbors

I hope they don't read my blog.  All the pears are by Kelly Clark from The French Knot in Fort Worth, Texas.  I really enjoyed stitching them.  The perfect ribbons are from The Ribbonry by Carolyn Baird in Chaparral Needlepoint located in Houston, Texas.

Santa in the Moonlight

Started another
Another one I got at the sale going on at The Needle Works.  Couldn't find any threads I really like so I started the background in black floss.

More Progress on Princess and Me Orange Santa

Added mittens, fur, and cactus plus forgot to mention belt yesterday.  Wouldn't you know it, I don't have the flesh colored floss I need?
