A new year, another Smalls SAL

My first entry in the Smalls SAL - a little Santa ornament by Homespun Elegance from the 2015 JCS ornament issue.  I swapped out all of the flosses, in part because my fabric was darker than the one used in the model.  I like the end result, though!

I stitched this twice last year. It was one of my very favorites! You did a beautiful job and your replacement fabric/floss colors are perfect.

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...
