Santa Claus Made It To Town

I have a UFO Finish.   Yeah!   Double reward.   A finish = a new start.

Santa was stitched pretty much as charted.    I think I will fluff up his beard with a brush.   It was stitched with whisper.  I am not framing this but rather mounting as a stand-up Santa or rather flying Santa.

Iron not even cooled and Santa not even wrapped up and I am pulling threads for something new.....such an obsession this cross stitching is!
