Well, that's done.

I stitched this little Victorian Santa from the December 1990 issue of Just Cross Stitch.  I stitched him on a mystery scrap of linen, and made just one little change - the pattern had the lines around the white squares in the border stitched in white, but I liked the contrast of red better.  Then I was wandering around in Michaels the other night, and found the little sled.  I had to pick off the little bell cluster and greenery (it was bigger, and attached right in the center) and reassemble it, but I think it worked!  It isn't perfect, but what the heck, I'll just call it "rustic."  :D
