Christmas in August

Charming SantaIt’s August. That means it’s time to start thinking about Christmas.

What? You don’t think about Christmas in August? šŸ˜‰

One of my favorite things to do when I’m not reading or writing is cross-stitch. And I’ve discovered I love these little projects because I have a short attention span (ask my husband) and I can get them done quickly. AND I can see progress right away. I like progress.

Back in July, the place I love to order from, www.123stitch.com, was having a sale on their Christmas stuff so I bought six of the Santa faces kits. I discovered these last year. I loved making it and decided I really wanted to make the whole series.

They’re fun. As you can see, they have lots and lots of beads. I lost count of how many times I stabbed myself, how many beads I dropped and lost. Luckily, I didn’t have to take out any stitches on this one and have a do-over. I managed to get this one down without any mistakes.

Isn’t he cute? I adore it. I’ve finished this one and started on the second one. By the time I’m done, I’ll have a set of six. I can’t wait to see them all done! And then I just might buy more and do them all over again. šŸ™‚
