Jo of Serendipitous Stitchings has organised a fantastic Advent Calendar blog hop and I am so happy to be a part of it this year and here is my offering for Day 14. This sweet Santa design is by Prairie Schooler and is just one of the lovely designs in the booklet. It's the first cross stitch ornament I have ever made and was really pleased with myself when I finally finished it off and it is now hanging on our Christmas tree.
Jo also asked the question of whether it was Stockings, Sacks or something else for Christmas. When our children were young I used to fill stocking up for them with small presents, fruit and sweets which were placed at the end of their beds for when they woke up. As they grew up this changed and all the presents were put around the Christmas tree. We now have grandchildren and it is my hope that I will finally get round to stitching them each a Christmas stocking which I can fill up with small gifts each year and hopefully they will be able to then continue that tradition when they are adults -which gives me a few years to make them!
