Christmas ornaments and other works

Hello my friends.
Today is a good day for a visit as the weather outside
has turned quite cold and showery.
Nice to be inside by a cozy fire.
I have joined Kaye`s 
Christmas Ornament SAL.
This month is Santa`s.

I made a start on `Santa`s Helper` 
by Mosey `N Me in 
Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments 2012.

I stitched a little more but I`m waiting on thread.
Hope this comes soon. 
I also kitted Primitive Button Santa 
from Better Homes and Gardens
Cross Stitch Christmas 2000.

While looking for some of the threads,
 Miss Tillie thought she could help.

I have joined in with Delbrooks 
$25 quilt.
As long as finished blocks are shown on set week of the month
the next block is given.
This is over 9 months.
There where three choices.
This is `Pretty`.
My block complete.

Thank you for visiting.
I am going to get my cutting board out for two tops that are 
next to do.
Plus stoke the fire as have clothes drying.
Happy Stitching,


  1. Beautiful cross stitched Santa and helper.
    The BOM looks sweet.

  2. Your cross stitch is looking great

  3. Dear clare,
    wonderful Christams stitchery and what a great idea with the free patterns. Love that.

  4. Both Santas look gorgeous, the one that you started and the one that you are going to stitch.

  5. Hallo Clare,
    Love your Santa! Yes it is one of the prettiest patterns in the book and I see you have even older editions of those books! Wish I had the pattern you made of the other Santa, it just looks so nice! Enjoy your stitches, hugs from Holland,

  6. Cute ornament and your 'helper' is very cute

  7. I love your Santa's! I had stitched the Mosey & Me one a few years back for a exchange. So I know the pretty specialty stitches in the lamb. Beautiful block for your quilt.
    love Annette
