Kind Kris Kringle

Well we got thru another Monday.
Only 4 Mondays left until Christmas.
I am feverishly working on trying
to finish up projects.
This is one of them.

A wool Kris Kringle project.

The background is a green check fabric.

The holly and pine needles were completed
 in a yellowish green wool,
not the traditional green.
This color reminded me of the leaves changing colors,
while the berries were Vibrant red Valdani thread.
I wanted a bit of  Autumn in this Christmas project.

The coat buttons are tiny rusty bells,
and his beard is real wool.
I hope to finish soon into a pillow...
however I am unable to get to the rest
of the green check fabric for the back.
Currently it is somewhere in our spare bedroom,
which is a chaotic mess right now.
Most of what was in our bedroom, 
except for our bed, now resides in the guest room.
Drywall is up in our room.
 Bob is now working on his closet.

For now this pillow is on hold...
now am working on something for my trees.
Stay tuned.

Are you working on any Christmas projects?
Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving.
Enjoy your turkey, ham, crab, lobster, etc.
Gobble it all up, whatever your dinner will be!

Kind Kris Kringle Blessings To All!
