One final finish for 2010

Amongst all the holiday craziness, I managed to finish my little La-D-Da Santa!Yes, there were many changes made. :) The fabric is something I grabbed from the 50-cent remnant bin at my LNS - based on the measurements I *think* it is a 32-ct. linen in some shade of blue. Santa's robe is stitched with "Swamp Water" from The Dye is Cast, and the "Merry Christmas" text is stitched with the DMC 3858 used elsewhere in the pattern. I changed the initials to my own (obviously) and wrote out the entire year instead of just the last 2 numbers. And I used GAST "Tarnished Gold" for Santa's boots and pack. I'm envisioning this as a flat-fold, when I get some time... (LOL, like THAT is going to happen anytime soon, with an almost-mobile 10 month old in the house!!)

I also have neglected to show off M-ort-icia much this year, but here she is in all her year-end glory.
Although it seems that Yoyo has abandoned the "Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long" and her blog altogether, Sharon has resurrected the TUSAL for 2011, and I'm planning to try again! So watch for Morticia updates on every new moon, starting January 4.

Decision Made

After monkeying with the shells and beads some more, I decided to take them all off... ...and I think I like it best this way.  I did add...
