Sunflower Santa







The pattern is by "The Sunflower Seed"
There are only certain santa's I like in
cross stitch, This one is just adorable.
Combining Christmas my favorite holiday,
and Sunflowers, one of my favorite flowers.
Done on linen. The ornaments in the photo
are from my daughter who bought them back
from overseas for me. In the upper left, the cross
is from Spain, In the upper right the shoes are
from amsterdam, the lower left is from Germany,
and the lower right is from Switzerland. The were
a couple of more she bought me also. She also
bought back a ton of swiss chocolate, yes, I ate it
all. The best chocolate I have ever eaten.
I want SPRING AND SUMMER. Does anyone
else feel this way?

A gorgeous finish Cindy! I love the trim you used.

I'm still waiting for winter! It's been a mild one here with just the odd cold spell and I'm still longing for some good, hard frosts and some snow.
