Another Catch Up!

Hi there cloud friends!  It seems that I am always catching up these days.  If you are in the East, I hope you have managed to stay warm and safe.  I heard how many people died of heart attacks shoveling snow.  I am thankful we have very little snow out here, at least  in the lowlands where we live.  My DH would be one of the ones out there shoveling like crazy.  We are just dealing with lots of rain-no surprise there.  It's what Seattle in known for, that and coffee.
Last week we stopped in a shop in town and found a cute Christmas tree for 60% off.  I thought it would make a great Santa tree so I am stitching one PS Santa a month.  It will take awhile to fill the tree, but in the mean time , I can put other things on the tree with the Santas. I'm also still working on Ann Topley 1802.  I will stitch a Santa at the beginning of the month and then go back to Ann for the remainder of the month. At least that's the plan for now.

 Here is the tree.  Sorry for the mess, it is already in the attic waiting for next Christmas!

 This is my second Santa.  It is from Book No. 20 "St. Nicholas". I changed the red and the gold.  The red is 3777 and the gold is 437.  I also changed a few of the minor colors. I used a small piece of linen from my stash. I'm not sure what it is.

 I have most of the letters stitched.  This design has a lot of different colors. I am enjoying the stitching but still not sue about all the colors.

 I picked this up at the grocery store for $7 after Christmas. These two flowers are worth that money!

I closed with a mountain view last post.  This time I will close with a beach post.  We had a nice sunny day last week and part of my PT is walking for 30 minutes.  This was the perfect place to take that walk.

Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you are all having a great week, stay warm and safe.
