Susan's Blue Russian

Susan's Blue Russian

Susan M. very kindly allowed me to post a progress photo of her Northern Light Santa.  She's finished her background's first step (she's WAY ahead of me there!) and stitched Santa's staff, robe and fur cuffs, his diadem and hat, and beard with mustache.  I love how she is customizing her Russian Santa to suit herself.  Her beard is much more realistic than my stylized one.  She has also added snow under his feet and omitted the gray shading on his fur cuff.  I love the way the snow is shaped!  She used the same glow-in-the-dark white Petite Silk Lame Braid I used and thinks the effect in the dark is very cool!

Thanks for allowing me to show this off, Susan.  It is lot of fun to see all the different Russian Santas as they are being worked.  Each has the distinct personality of its creator being added with every stitch.
