Blue Ridge Santa

When I saw Jillian's finished Mill Hill ornament Melchior last week, I thought it could be a good way to test out my wrist again too. This is the second of the Appalachian Santas, the Blue Ridge Santa. I stitched it entirely while watching dippy Christmas movies. This was silly fun at first, but believe me, I am WAY past the saturation point on Christmas now!

I have the third one half done and ready for the beads, but I think it will go back in the box for the time being. I'm not sure if I'll be posting again before Christmas or not, so if not,

Happy Christmas!

  1. I have several of these Mill Hill bead kits stashed away somewhere. I moved on to quilting and I also probably got saturated with beads and Santas at the time. If they ever resurface, I will finish them. That would probably mean that I cleaned out my basement, though, so don't hold your breath.

    1. LOL. Have a great holiday, Mary Ellen!

  2. so good to see you were able to do a bit of stitching with the arm injury, take care not to overdo it though

  3. I think you are Wonderwoman! I found Melchior quite hard on my wrist - holding the paper in my left hand was the problem. I'm afraid Balthasar and Casper must wait another year for their epiphany!

  4. Thank you Margaret and Jillian! Right now typing hurts more than stitching. I'd love to go into more detail, but rest assured, I am taking care! Happy Christmas!

  5. Beautiful stitching and look after that wrist. Merry Christmas to you and yours Monica

  6. Beautiful Santa! Glad you were able to do a bit stitching. A Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  7. The mill hill kits are beautiful and always make me look at beads with new admiration. They're going to be gorgeous ornaments. Hope your wrist is better soon. I often get minor RSI and carpal tunnel issues due to weak wrists and 8+ hours a day on a computer. I really need to get some tennis wristbands for support but can never find them in a small size when I look for them. Wrists and eyes are the things I'm most afraid of ruining. Take care!! Have a fantastic christmas and new year and thanks for all your comments on my blog this year. You've helped keep me enthusiastic about my projects :D

  8. Happy to see you have been able to do a little stitching. Merry Christmas and a good New Year.

  9. Thanks again everyone! Typing is my main issue now, so I'm sorry if I seem terse sometimes! I hope everyone is having a great holiday!


Between the new situation with comment notifications, and my ongoing shoulder issue, I probably won't be able to reply to comments. But, I sincerely appreciate every one! Thanks so much for your visit!
