Prairie Schooler Santa SAL progress

Hiya.  So we are a couple of Sundays into our PS Santa SAL.  I had a slow start last Sunday.
Today, I made a lot more progress! 
I realized today I made a boo-boo with the DMC colour for the reindeer/trees part of the santa. I used Ecru instead of 738! Ecru was supposed to be used for the hair and beard! Oh well. I wasn't going to frog so I just used white on the hair and beard. It will have to do!

I am really enjoying stitching Prairie Schooler again!

Here's a peek at my Valentine shelf. 
That's me for another short&sweet post!  Thanks for stopping by. Hope you are all doing well and if you are caught in the deep winter freeze, I hope you are able to keep warm and stitch!

Enjoy your week!

Love your PS Santa. The whites look fine. Love that long pillow too. Remind me of who the designer is on that?? I should know! It's wonderful!

Look at it this way. Your's is an original santa!

Oh, Medlissa, you are stitching PS Santas. They are so pretty. I was stitching sven of them last year but it was a different book, book 88. But they are all gorgeous.
A very nice Valentine piece.

Melissa, can you share the name and designer of the long pillow, it is so sweet, the Dutch people are awesome!
Love your PS Santas, they are fun to stitch!!!

Hilda said...

Hi Melissa,
quite a good progress on your cute santa. If you go on like that, you will finish it soon.
On my santa I also changed Ecru to White right from the beginning. I found Ecru not "white" enough.

Your Valentine shelf looks great (or what you show of it).

Have a nice new week,

Hilda

Santas are lovely and I've been stitching them too! Who is having the SAL? Probably don't need to know anyway as I have so many irons in the fire...
I love your sweet long pillow! It is darling!

PS designs are timeless, they never fail to appeal. Your Valentine shelf looks good - I can't believe it's almost with us again.

Mary said...

This guy is one of my very favorites! Love his funky hat. Can't wait to see him all done up.

Maggee said...

You are staying nice and busy... stitching is the best hobby for that! Hugs!

Beth said...

Are you going to stitch all 3 Santas? I like them all. Nice Valentine display.

Carol said...

Nice progress on your Santa, Melissa :) I am about half done with mine, too--hope to get a blog post done this week and you can see him. I think the white and ecru look great!

Your valentine shelf is so sweet--love that l-o-n-g pillow :) I didn't even get my Valentine's Day stuff out this year :( Just too busy with work and traveling up to mom's. Oh well, I still have a couple of days, right?

Enjoy your week, my friend--we're going back into a deep freeze this weekend :(

Andrea said...

Nice progress. Looking at Ecru and 738, there isn't that much difference anyway, not so you would notice. Your Valentines shelf is lovely.

Loving the PS santa and what a nice pillow - who's the designer? I've never seen this one before and it's lovely!

Marie said...

One of my favorite PS designs. I would not have picked out the white either…it will look fine! :-)

Your long Valentine pillow is very nice.
