The 2017 Santa Tree

Good morning friends! 
It's time for this years Prairie Schooler Santa Tree! This is one of the 4 trees in the living room..
 This year they got a new tree .. this flocked 6-1/2 foot tall tree.. The only thing bad about  a new flocked tree is the flocking sticks to the stitched  ornaments... but it looks so pretty , its just a little "snow" on them !I put this tree and the tree I showed you yesterday on bins because our Christmas village wraps around it ..You can see the bin in the above photo.. I have 4 of the yearly Santa's left to stitch .. I know I need to get on that! :) and many other leaflets of Santa's to stitch!

 They are all finished with different homespuns and ginghams ... such a treat to pull out these friends!
 I also add a  few Santa ornaments ...some vintage.. Lots of buffalo check ribbon this year ..
 White fur strips like Santa's suit is woven in and out of the tree..A big fabric Santa head is the tree topper with lots of buffalo check ribbons.. Just a warning.. there is a lot of buffalo check this year ! :) Love it!



 I love this tree and all the stitched Santa's!

If you would  like to see what I am up to everyday join me on Instagram and my Facebook page ! I do post on both almost everyday ..Links to my Facebook page , Instagram and Pinterest are in the sidebar .. Hope to see you there ! :)

I love this one so much. I simply must start stitching some of these PS Santas.

I love your finishing, especially the little extra on the backing pieces that provides a ‘frame’ for the stitching. You have inspired me to get out all my PS charts with Santas along with the annual Santas.

It’s beautiful! Everything you touch is magical! Would you do a post sometime on how you frame them? Love the Santa pillow, too!

Carol said...

Simply the best!! Just look at all of that PS Santa stitchy goodness :) Have you stitched all of the yearly Santas, Priscilla? I think I've only done six or so--I have a long way to go! I look forward to seeing the other trees!

I love this tree-the red and black buffalo check is perfect! I'm just starting to cross stitch ornaments so it may be quite a while before I have enough to do a whole tree!

Amazing - I have a Santa cross stitch tree & it is my favorite. When I am old that is the tree I will put up all the time.

Probably my most favorite of your trees, but I withhold the right to judge until I see them all!! Just absolutely adorable!

I really have to make the two PS Santas that I recently finished into ornaments for my kids. Your tree is inspiring me.

It's just beautiful, Priscilla! I stitched a Prairie Schooler Santa for each of my children (5) a long, long time ago...but sadly, I think my daughter and youngest son are the only two that still put them up...Now I'm inspired to stitch some for myself for next year! You are amazing!!

Bessieanniegeorgie said...

Gorgeous!! I would not ever want to take it down

Mary said...

Only 4 PS Santa's left to stitch!!! Your tree is amazing! Love, love, love it!! I have yet to stitch a PS Santa but your tree is certainly inspiring me. You must have one huge LR to hold 4 trees! Mary@stitchingfriendsforever

Wow! What a stunning tree! It shows such a LOT of work, in the stitching and in the decorating with ribbon and the topper! Very very nicely done! Hugs!
