Finishing project # 2!

As I said, finishing is not something that I do often so it took me forever to get to these little guys. I stitched them up 2- 3 years ago and then they have been hanging out in the pile. But I'm pretty happy with this finishing, especially the pearl pins that I found. I love everything pearly (ist that a word??).
All the santa's is from The Prairie Schoolers St Nichola's II leaflet (that's from the top of my head so excuse me if I'm wrong).

This backing fabric is awesome! Love the design and the fabric itself is thick and easy to work with! My next finishing project is already started. We are getting another 6 inches of snow and near to blizzard conditions here today. So yesterdat I did whatever any sane stitched would do when facing the prospect of getting snowed in with their kids, I got milk and then 3 frames at Hobby Lobby so I could frame some of my stuff, hehe. Thanks for visiting and thanks for the sweet comments!

Your ornaments are sooo cute! You did a lovely job finishing them...and you must be THRILLED to have them done!

I don't envy you the snow, that's for sure. The frigid temps are bad enough.

Great start of the year, you did a brilliant job on the finishing. Now you only have to wait another 352 days till it is Christmas again :). I'd say, keep them out all year.

I just love your ornaments!! And that fabric you backed them with is so pretty. I don't envy you the snow, but we're suppose to get about the same amount tomorrow. Hopefully the kids will still go to school, but if not - I'm ready - lots of projects to get caught up on!

Oh Kajsa, they look gorgeous. I've fallen in love with the little guys since I saw this picture. Great stitching and excellent finishing. I will go and pull out the PS book now and see what I can do to these lovely Santas.

Great finishing job! I'm such a procrastinator when it comes to doing that.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am using silks on the CaHRH. Our Cross stitch store just started carrying them so I am using them for the first time. So far so good...the colors are not exactly the same as DMC...I actually the like color of the DMC better but the silk is easier to use. Dianntha
