A little Holiday cross stitch

This year, just like last year (here and here), I decided to make a Satsuma Street ornament for Gregory’s teacher. I showed Gregory the 6 options in the ornament collection, and he decided that he’d like to give her the Santa one!

DetailsChristmas Ornaments by Satsuma Street on Etsy. Worked mostly as written using DMC cotton embroidery floss – the few color substitutions I made were to add a bit more contrast.

I tried a new canvas this year, it is Zweigart 28-count Jubilee in the color “Dawn Grey” (got it at this eBay store – no time to go to an actual store). The trim I used last year didn’t work with this new gray-ish canvas, so I decided to use a simple red & gold satin ribbon. I didn’t plan to tie it into a knot to make the loop, but that’s just how it worked out, and I think I like it!

I documented the finishing process on Instagram!
