“Chimney Santa” by Heartstring Designs -- December 30, 2008

I’m very pleased that I’ve finished stitching the design on my Heartstrings “Chimney Santa”!


When you purchase a Heartstrings design, Pat Thode includes a stitch guide with lots of fun stitch and thread suggestions. This was a fun stitch and I stitched it pretty much as suggested by Pat.

I’m not sure yet what I’ll do for the background stitching. I’ll put it aside for now while I consider my different options.

The PC is finally back up and running so I’ll be able to post more in the next few days. Thank goodness! I’m way behind on my blog reading. :-)

Enjoy!

Cynthia,

That is beautiful.

I love it when there is a stitch guide with any project. You always have the choice to use it, modefy it or just do your own thing. Love having lots of options :-)

What a great finish, I just *love* Pat's designs. I have quite a stack at home and can enjoy just looking at them. Those included stitch guides are great IMHO. How will you finish him?
