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!
