Meet Mr Red Sweater Santa

Good Monday morning to you all! I'm happy as there's sunshine outside and there was sunshine yesterday too! What a mood lifter. Now onto meeting Mr Handsome Sweater Man.

That's my first PS Santa of the year! I just love stitching Prairie Schooler again.  Right now I am stitching from the Kris Kringle booklet.  I think I may stitch three from this booklet then maybe move onto something else. We shall see!

Since I seem to be leaning towards stitching smalls these days, I needed to add some small designs to my stash. Here's my recent stash acquisition which, sadly, took over a month to get to me from the USA!
In particular I have wanted to stitch "Wintertime" for quite awhile so I am thrilled that it's finally here. For some reason I guess I have Christmas on my mind!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

Your PS Santa is a cutie! I love the deer in his coat. Nice lot of charts you added to your smalls. Hope you are staying warm, Melissa!

Very cute finish and great stash acquisition! I need to pick up ornament stitching again. I've got a kit I take to work to stitch at lunch but there hasn't been much time at work for lunch lately.

Pretty choices Melissa, I can't believe how long they took to reach you - I think that any longer than a week is too long to reach me in Scotland!

He looks great and warm!
Nice, nice new chart choices.

Can't wait to see the final finish for Mr. Santa! I actually played with the thought of stitching a Santa on Sundays myself....maybe if someone gave me a little push?

What fun to have new stash to ponder as well!

Love your Mr. Sweater man! He's a great Santa -- almost fair isle like. :D Great new stash too! Bummer that it took so long to come. USPS has been really laggard recently, even here in the states. They have major problems IMO.

Wintertime is worth the wait - so pretty. Like Santa's reindeer sweater.

Your PS Santa looks lovely. I have stitched three of them for last Christmas & must admit I found them really nice projects. I will definitely stitch more of those with time :)
Fabulous new stash, all new charts look very tempting :) Looking forward to admire your finishes!

Such a great PS Santa choice! Love him. And I really love all your new stash. That Wintertime piece is going to be amazing.

Yay! You've finished number one, Melissa :) I do love this Santa and may end up stitching him myself this year. I look forward to seeing which one is next up for your needle and thread...

So sorry the mail was so slow to reach you, but what a great bunch of new charts :) Which will you start with?

Hope your week is warm and sunny (ours sure isn't!!)...

A wonderful Santa, hope he is the first of many this year! Great stash too.

Brigitte said...

Ohhh, what a great start of your PS-Santa stitching this year. He's such a lovely guy, everything on this chart is so beautiful, the reindeer on the coat, the bluebird on his hand. Now I'm looking forward to seeing your second choice.

Fantastic new stash that you bought. These charts will produce some very nice Christmas stitching.
