Shop stitching, RUSH job 12

I don't know why needlepoint canvas designers insist on giving Santa a red/pink nose.  I understand the ruddy cheeks, but a red nose?  Makes him look like a rummy.  I stitched my Santa face au natural and I think it looks great.  I also completed the nobuko on his Santa's suit and my double French knots on the trim on his suit.  I also tossed in the black metallic gold rush 18 on the doll's shoes.  No way am I tackling black patent!

I have to chuckle because I have been ducking stitching Santa's moustache.  I don't know why.  Maybe next week?  Who knows?

  1. Santa has a handsome face! His suit isn't too shabby, either! Keep at it, Mary Agnes--slowly but surely.
