Santa is ready to leave.

As the title of the post suggests, Santa is done and ready to leave.
Last night I did a tiny bit more to my Floral Trio.

After I put the final stitches into Santa that is.
Is it just me, or is he wearing Cowboy boots?

The iron work was a part of the kit, I love that, it saves me having to find something. The ribbons and the bell are my own addition though.
That's it, that's the last of the hand made gifts done! There wasn't loads of them anyway, but it still feels good to be finished.
For now I have the little Rose stitchery on the go and also my floral trio. I may see if I can get the clematis done before the end of the year. If I'm enjoying it I may keep going and get the third flower done, it's a hydrangea, looks fiddly, with lots of thread changes. We'll see what comes.
How silly of me to get so worried about seeing Maria only once every two weeks, I've done that a few times anyway for various reasons, so I know I can do it. Am I just being a big toot? Or is it because Dad will be back in the new year and I feel that I may need the same support? What ever, I'm not wanting to dwell on it, I need to get on, look forward, somewhere down that road is the day when I don't need to see maria at all. So I'll focus on now, on friendly people with friendly faces and have a wonderful Christmas with my Hunney and the children and I'll deal with him and the new year, when they get here.

1) A late shift.
2) Supportive Blog friends.
3) A morning Kiss. ;-x

Santa looks great - his boots are a bit on the "cowboy" side! but who knows maybe the real Santa does wear cowboy boots!?

I'm glad you gave your Santa his legs. The cowboy style boots look great. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your Floral Trio.
