Well, it looks like we're getting our first real snow of the season tonight, so perhaps it is appropriate that I started "Santa's Garden," a Gail Bussi design from a 2005 magazine, over the weekend. Here is my progress so far:
I'm stitching it on a piece of 28-ct. natural linen banding. I didn't have the GAST Antique Rose that the pattern used for Santa's hat and coat, so I substituted "Cherry Jam" by The Dye is Cast. It is a little more red than the Antique Rose, but I like it all the same.
