I named Mrs. Claus Noel based on some of the cheesy Hallmark and ION shows that I have been watching during Christmas break. She needed a name too.
 
After Christmas, my husband pointed out that I rarely stitch things for myself even though stitching makes me really happy. So, I raided the huge $5 box of kits and supplies he picked up for me at the local thrift shop months ago, a wonderful find I might add.



I made this neat little design just for myself. The kit also included an adhesive mat and a plastic red frame. I'm very happy with how it turned out. I ended up not stitching Happy Holidays because it distracted from the focus of the kiss.

The design is called Happy Holidays by Pat Maloney Bord, published by The New Berlin Company in 1992. Just love thrift store finds!

Now, I hope the completion of this design with inspire me to finish the Dimensions Santa before next Christmas. I'm hoping to give "Santa's Secret" as a gift next year.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
