I love the cross stitch Chris. Looks more old fashioned. Great work!
Thanks Miss Lillian, me too. Love Chris
Great to see a cross stitch emb design stitched out. I've only done 2 designs and they were pretty--just never tried anymore although I have some. You've done a beautiful job.
Thanks so much Patti, I love cross-stitch designs, they are so great to watch sewing out. Love Chris
You have shown us a good example of how you can use cross stitch designs on fabric other than Aida cloth. A very good example it is, too! I must admit, I don't collect very many XST designs but you've done excellent work of these. What stabilizer did you use please?
Oh, Chris, this is fantastic! I love it!
Thanks Debbie, this will be out for my ladies luncheon this year. Love Chris
Just had a chance to see this - it is beautiful!! I want to know, how did you get it finished to quickly? Do you have 3 machines going at once - lol?? Hugs to you, Laura
I think she has elves working for her like Santa... LOL!
LOL ... I could use a couple of elves to help me!!
Hi Laura, I only have two embroidery machines, but put it all together with just the sewing section. Love Chris
This is beautiful
Thanks Kay, love Chris
These are amazing! Love the star fabric around them also.
Thanks so much, I do too. Love Chris
You love your Santa's and they sewed out excellent for you!!!!1Hugs
Hi Carolyn, yes, I do love collecting Santa things! Thanks, lov eChris
Turned out really lovely - nice wall hanging!
Thanks Mary, I think so too. Love Chris
This is terrific, Chris......will look lovely on a wall.....
Thanks Vicki, I hope so, if not hanging over one of my couches. Love Chris
Great job. Did you do them on Aida cloth or just regular fabric? Either way it's spectacular.
Hi Jerrilyn, it's just on ordinary white cloth with a bit of a liine look to it. It's a gorgeous fabric. Love Chris
Love this piece! Cute santa's!
Thanks so much Chris, love Chris.
P.S. Are you home yet from visiting Christie?
This quilt impresses me. Maybe I should do a small cross-stitch design. Hugs, Suzanna
Thanks Suzanna, go for it! It's easy doing a small one. Love Chris

This is a fantastic example of machine embroidery and quilting merged to make an amazingquilt! These little Santas are so cute and cheerful! Nicely done!
Thanks so much Penny, (I hope that is your name) and these are actually Cross-stitch too! I love watching it sew out. Love Chris
Penny is my nickname!
Such a Stunning Project!!Great work done..Gorgeous!!!
Thanks Sonja, love Chris
At the rate you are going you will have everything for your Christmas luncheon done by Easter. Great work
Ha ha ha! I can't believe it's only 3 weeks away. We also finish our daylight saving on Easter Sunday 1st April. It's so dark here in the mornings when I go for my walk, so I can't wait.
with you there! hate the last month of daylight saving. not really saving as we have the light on in the mornings because it's so dark.
Love these, you have done a great work.
Thanks so much Barbel, the digitiser does all the work though! I just press buttons, he he he! Love Chris
I was wondering what you were going to do with these...great job~
Thanks Kim, well each year I try to do some sort of Christmas themed sewing project. As I'm a nutter for Santas, this was ideal. It's worked out about 20 inches square. Each little Santa was a 4x4 and I just made it on a piece of white fabric that I cut at 6 1/2 inch square. Love Chris
I love doing machine embroidered cross stitch...it is mesmerizing to watch it stitch out!
Lovely work Chris, much more exciting than housework
Thanks so much Caroline, that's for sure! More relaxing too! Love Chris
Chris, These turned out great. Love your red fabric and each Santa makes the one beside it cuter. They'd be hanging all year at my house...
Thanks Betsey, I wanted to bring the stars out as each Santa has a star in it and I was fortunate enough when I was at Spotlight last year I saw a pack of fat quarters in reds! The star fabric was a piece in it! So it matched perfectly. Love Chris
so pretty my friend, great work,
Thanks so much, high praise from you. Love Chris
Thanks so much Sandy, love Chris
