Sunday Stitchings

I still haven't managed to sort out the issue I'm having with posting photos, I have posted my problem on the google groups page so fingers crossed I'll get the help I need soon.

Onto the main reason for my post, stitching!!

Followers of Rhona's blog tangled threads will have seen her post about a summer bucket list and her suggestion of a craft themed bucket, if not go check it out here!!

Long story short I was far to impatient to do the stitching before the bucketing so here is my makeshift bucket list, safely held in my kilner jar-incidentally one of the things on my bucket list is to do the stitching for my bucket list...and to do the pincushion top idea, also from Rhona's blog!!

Today's stitching comes from the bucket list (also known as the jam jar of destiny) and surprisingly was the project I've been working on all week....Santa 10. I had hoped to do something different for a change but the jam jar had spoken.

So here is my progress on Santa. Pardon the hoopmarks... working on Santa's trousers at the minute, the thread you can see trailing off the top of the present is for a button to be attached. I'm not entirely sure if I want to stitch Santa's beard with the recommended Whisper thread or just in plain white thread, he's going to be finished as either a flat fold or an orny for the tree and I wouldn't want it to get matted later... hmm decisions decisions....

There are still a few hours of daylight left so I'm hoping to get some more done before it gets to dark to see.

Until next time, happy stitching!!

Lovely progress on Santa. When I stitched a similar santa I just used ordinary white thread. Would love to know what projects are in the bucket jar.

Great progress on your Santa.
Your bucket list jar is a great idea!
