From the  chilly hollow blog    https://chillyhollownp.blogspot.com/

There's a new book out from Tracy Chevalier, whom you probably know as the author of The Girl with the Pearl Earring.  And guess what?  It's about NEEDLEPOINT!

Great article for those of who stitch and read.

Drum Santa is making progress

another finish

Yes, another finish.

I made a couple of changes.
I had decreased the width of the stand due to the fabric
which changed the where the post went so it is off center
I used French knots in the bough of holly inside the stand
I used a shade darker of green in the robe.
for the two spool ins the bag - 
I stitched in the center then did satin stitch over it.

Now to keep the momentum going.
