I know this isn't quilting but I was too tired last night to prep some more handwork. And didn't get to it before that.
The copyright date on the back of the pattern is 1998. I'm pretty sure I started it that year. There are 5 old world Santas on this pattern.
If you click on the picture, you will see that it is 28 count linen! My eyes were 13 years younger when I started on it. I have one other Santa that you can't see finished. So two more Santas and the rest of the border. Told Dear Hubby that if I EVER finished it, that I would spend the money to have it professionally framed. It deserves it after all this time in a hoop!
I'll be back later. If you are new to the Christmas Quilt Along, go to the 2011 CQAL tab at the top.
