The Last Finish of 2009

This was my Santa Themed mantle this year.
We are the proud owners of eight Santa's and two Angel's (so far), and since we never managed to bring our tree up from the basement this year, I went with a large pine wreath and a few cross stitched ornaments.

This is my last finish of 2009. I finished it on Christmas Eve.
Design: Merry Christmas (12-24-2009)
Designer: Sandy in Montana
Stitched on 28ct. Carolina Linen in Sand from Charles Craft using DMC threads, Mill Hill beads and two snowflakes from Jesse James Company.

Take Care & Happy Stitching
