Father Christmas and Cats – Progress 3

This is slow going, but I’m persistent. LOL

The hat is tilted back on his head a little, so there is a lot of forehead to stitch, but I’ve completed enough that you can see the eyes a little now.


It’s wonderful to see this coming to life. I know I’ll be working more on the background over the next month, but I wanted to see if I could get the face done a bit before I returned to the background. On the right side of the design, Father Christmas is holding a steaming cup of coffee. I’ll have to stitch the ecru for the steam first and then add the rest of the background.

Happy stitching holidays to everyone!

  1. Wow! Looking great! Wish I was you, due to “work”, (four letter word) all of my stitching has come to an abrupt halt. On a better note, I am now able to order the fabric for the PIG Mandala. I just now saw that abbreviating Persian Iris Garden becomes PIG. That’s all the humor I have for today! Merry Stitchin’ Christmas to you and all who follow you as you keep us posted!!
