This is Santa's List by Country Cottage Neeedleworks .. This is a stitchalong on our YouTube channel #pcsantaslist..
I mounted the stitching on sticky board .. then added a black and red Christmas plaid fabric to sticky board .. glued them together and added magnets to the Santa .. and washers to the back of the stitched piece.. that way I can put Santa in the Christmas bins and the cross stitch can be in the cross stitch bin .. Some flocked greenery .. jingle bell picks and some plaid ribbon for a bow and he is as cute as can be .. This Santa has been part of our decorations for a lot of years ..maybe 10-15 and this year I was thinking of not even putting him out .. but how perfect did this turn out!

This piece was stitched on an airplane to a Caribbean cruise .. on the cruise and finished in Orlando Florida the night before we started the week in Disney
IN Disney .. Santa had to hold it ( at Hollywood Studios) and at The Grand Floridian Cinderella's stepsisters and stepmother all had there turn with it too! So many memories will be associated with this piece! So fun!
