Santa Star

Well, this one seemed to take forever to do, and I haven't done the finishing, but here's my ornament for the SAL. Cute isn't he?!



It's Santa Star by Lavender Wings from the 2002 JCS ornament issue. I didn't do all the backstitching as I didn't think it added anything (and I hate backstitching!) and I left off the stars as I want to make it into a star-shaped ornament. It's stitched on a bit of Silkweaver linen from a treat bag - I think it's 28ct.

He's just too cute, Nicki :) I have stitched a santa star, but I think it was a freebie :). I love the way he came out and I can't wait to see him finished as a star ornie :)
Congratulations :)

He's very cute! And I think you're right. It doesn't need backstitching :) Which is great news, because I've been eyeing this one for a while now thinking I have to stitch him one day.
