Day #8 of my Ultimate Crazy January Challenge is Santa's 12 Days of Christmas from The Prairie Schooler. I have decided to stitch all 12 Santas on one big piece of fabric. There is enough room for 3 Santas across and 4 rows down with 4" margins and 1/2" in between. Each one is 3-1/2" x 5". The entire finished piece will be 12" x 22" on 28 ct evenweave, stitched 2 over 2. Linda and Kaye are also stitching these 12 Santas, so we're having a Sunday SAL.
I am so thankful that I received this brand new piece of 28 ct MCG Textiles evenweave in Mushroom color as a RAK from Melissa last summer. It is just perfect for this project. Thanks again, Melissa!
I started my cross stitch stash with a big bag of old assorted floss from a yard sale. With the help of a DMC floss color card (with actual threads) that I bought from someone on Craigslist, I was able to figure out the corresponding DMC colors. Many of these old embroidery flosses did not have DMC conversions available. I am happy to be using many of these miscellaneous flosses for this Santa's 12 Days project. These include old J&P Coats, Peri-Lusta, and Bucilla floss.
