Wow, it's been so long since I've really posted.  I found out I was finally pregnant, and nothing seemed to matter anymore...not in a bad way, I guess I was so amazed at creating a human being it drained all my creative energy for a few weeks. Smiley   Anyway. I also finally finished my Santa cross stitch a couple weeks ago.  It got really hard towards the end because of all the fancy stitches like couching and braiding - I swear I will never braid again.  Tongue   it's not framed yet, but I'm SO glad I finished it before the baby!  My mom still has a giant latch hook rug she never finished because of me.  For the past 26 years she's had 12 rows to go. lol

It was a Dimensions Gold Collection kit...they have the best detail and shading, but I don't know if I have the patience to try another one!

A little blurry, but I always seem to forget to take pictures when the sun's still out.

And Isis helping show the scale.  Wink

I had to change one thing though.  The tree behind his pack has gold french knots.  The instructions told me to use five strands of metallic gold thread.  Didn't work unless the french knot is supposed to be three inches big with loops all over the place Wink   That was the most impossible thing I've ever tried.
