Hi my dear Cuties, Just wanted to share my new “Merry” Christmas to match my Santa. She is beautiful. I made her in the 5x7 hoop and is about 35,000 stitches. She is made of Free standing lace and it’s for me - well for my Christmas tree. Love Chris

P.S. The design is from EmbroiderybyTM.

She's gorgeous, Chris and good for you making something for yourself, especially when 99% of you Christmas sewing seems to be for your "Ladies' Lunch"! Hugs*, Deb

Here is “Merry” Christmas and Santa on our tree. Aqualina and I put it up on Tuesday (only because she was sick and wanted to do it). I normally put my tree up on the first Sunday in Advent. They are are at the top left and right if the tree. I don’t have the lights on yet, they will be put up on the 1st December which is actually the first Sunday of Advent this year. Love Chris

WOW, I love this Mrs Santa and the Santa. I see they are offering a package deal if you buy both of them. So, of course I couldn't resist... Hope mine turn out as pretty as yours did when I make them.

A very lovely gift for yourself Chris. I almost never get to keep anything for myself. It's out the door before I realize it. LOL

Yes, it does seem like we always make for others, but that's the joy of doing this hobby, isn't it? Love Chris

She is beautiful! I am always afraid to do a design with a high stitch count. You proved it can be done and you did it to perfection!

Suzana, don't stall, have a go. I use the fabric type Water Soluble Solvy (WSS) not the plastic type and always use 2 layers of it. As long as you put the same colour in the bobbin you will have a 2 sided design. Love Chris

Now isn't that the most adorable FSL! That apron looks like it is actually flowing and the little lace at the bottom of it is a fantastic detail. The fur really looks like the real thing! You have a wonderful talent and I enjoy the things you share with us!
