The Patchwork Santa who is decorating Blog this morning was a gift from my friend Mimi who stitched the standup in a Carole Lake weekly class at Needleworks in Austin years ago. Isn't he handsome? He usually decorates my house each Christmas but since I have a rambunctious puppy large enough to grab him off the dining room table, this year Patchwork Santa is only decorating Blog.
By the way, you can only see his head and upper torso right now. Santa will appear fully only when Christmas is here!
The painted canvas under Patchwork Santa's stitches is by JB Designs. There is also a matching Mrs. Santa, who comes either wearing an apron or without.
UPDATE: Thanks to a question from Susan, I looked at Needle Works' website and see that they sell both Mr. and Mrs. Patchwork Santa with Carole Lake's class instructions which are excellent according to Mimi. Thanks for asking, Susan!
UPDATE: PFOS has both Mr. and Mrs. Patchwork in stock.
Thank you, Mimi. My Christmas is brighter because of you.
