Small Finish and a giveaway extension!

I managed a small Christmas finish yesterday in the midst of an absolutely crazy weekend. You can get my Santa pattern here.

I had 2 performances last weekend plus all the rehearsals. It was kinda crazy. Just one more performance left and then I have a break until next year which I'm looking forward to. Everything will be taking a break including softball.

So I have been working on Santa and I managed to finish him despite the lack of motivation and having to do a couple of exams.

Oh I don't think I've mentioned this yet. I got accepted into a dual diploma course business and management. I'm taking a step away from teaching and we shall see where it leads. As I told my grandma yesterday I want to eventually run my own craft shop but what form that shop takes I'm not sure. I don't know whether I will just run workshops for kids or have a full shop with a cafe attached. There are lots of options and I'm throwing them all around at the moment. Nothing is happening quickly I need experience first and everything I'm doing is testing the waters and moving in that direction.

But back to Santa I finished stitching him yesterday morning I think but only now getting the time to post.

 Doesn't he look SOOOOO cute! To understand the size they are only about 2 inches high. I'm going to turn these into some sort of Christmas quilt hanger or something. I'm not sure exactly what!

 L and C were looking for something to do so they both picked up some sort of stitching. L is doing her cross stitch Sampler while C is doing a tapestry style star. He is getting better since I put him on Plastic canvas. I will update with their work soon.

I've also been working on things that aren't my designs. I'm loving the way this one is turning out but I'm so out of practice working on evenweave! I've been working a lot on aida recently.

Ohk for those that made it this far I'm giving a couple more days to get an entry into my giveaway. It's a couple of posts back. I understand the silly season means noone has time to keep up to date so I'm giving some more chances to get an entry in. You have until Friday your time to post your entry!!!

Happy Stitching!
