EDITED. Hi Cuties, I’ve been sewing out the Santa letter hanger today from Sweetpea. I’ve done 2 sections as I was out all morning, so didn't get a chance to do the last 2 bits of the hanger I had coffee with another “sewing friend” I met on Sweetpea and she just lives 20 minutes away from me on the other side of our beautiful Lake Macquarie.

We have had some refreshing rain today, so it's been a great day to sew. I hope to finish the bottom section tomorrow. I used Silver thread on the edge of his hat and moustache, not one break!!!! Love Chris
P.S. I used fur fabric for Santa’s hat and moustache. This is the biggest size 7x12.

Here is the finished Santa letter holder - Wednesday evening 6.30pm. Love Chris

Hi Penny, I thought so too. I must get cracking and get my Christmas letter started as I send it out 6 weeks before Christmas. It gets hectic in our household that time of year and with Amy, Steve Ophelie, Delphi and Maisie (the dog) moving in here next weekend, I'll have to get a wiggle on. They are knocking down their old miner's cottage and building a new 2 story home - could be with us for up to a year!!!!!!!!!!!! Love Chris

Lovely job, Chris. The winking Santa gives it a naughty look and love the font used as well. Love, Mary

Hi Mary, yes, it's a great design and that font came with the design, not sure what it is called. Love Chris

Really nice! Your Christmas luncheon ladies will all want one! Love those Sweetpea designs and have to discipline myself when I go to their site!! The Santa table runner would go great with this one.

Thanks Carol, I'm hoping it will hold my Christmas cards this year. I only send out 25 interstate ones, so let's hope it will hold them if I get that many back. Love Chris

I hope you have fun it caused me a few issues. I've been doing applique for years, but still found directions a tad confusing, especially when the corresponding numbers don't match! Love Chris

Really cute, I think you can never have enough card holders. I save most of my Christmas cards from family and friends. You see how children grow up in their pictures which is always so fun.

Thanks, yes I agree. I don’t know how many this will hold. I only send out 25 cards interstate these days. ❤️👵🏻

Kudos to SweetPea for a darling design. Love your result - the fur fabric makes the design 3-D. Soo cute.

Good evening (afternoon to you) Sarah, yes, isn't it gorgeous? I put a red nose on him instead of flesh coloured as I thought it made his fave stand out better. I'm just off to bed it's 10.30pm Tuesday night as I write this. Love Chris
