I'm afraid I am up to my ears in present making and couldn't do the next round, but I hope that all you who do have as much fun as I had on this one.

To the folks who wanted the Santa pattern, it's from a Christmas canvas book I bought and I think it would be illegible to post it. The book is Leasure Arts "Santa's Special Delivery" by MizFitz. Actually the beard wasn't supposed to look like that. It was just strands of yarn but I brushed it to get that affect.

There are a lot of cute plastic canvas ornaments on line you can get for free and others you have to purchase the pattern. The light bulb, the drums from Swap 2 came from on line, the Christmas tree from swap were on line. I did alter the Christmas tree instead of cross stitching candles on it I used brads. If you want great patterns just Google - Plastic Canvas Christmas Ornaments and you get a ton of sights. You can pick and choose from there.

I could do one more ornament if there is a Round 4.

We put our Christmas tree up Thanksgiving weekend.

I forgot to mention, I also altered the lightbulb it had a stitched nose and I thought the pompom would be cuter. That's one great think about plastic canvas you can alter where ever you want.

I've had fun, but I don't think I would have time for another round this season.  I would love to look at the gallery though if there were another. Wink

I also wouldn't be able to join another round. I have stretched myself way to far with Christmas items the way it is.

Looking to increase my 1.5 in scraps for a rainbow project. If interested in swapping let me know!

It is so cute! I wish I had taken better pics! There is a peppermint candy on top(swirls and everything!) and candy canes under the window...it is so cool! I love it.

I'm so glad you like it! Its crocheted, and it took me forever to think up designs to draw on there lol. =)
