Russian Santa Stitch-a-Long

Northern Light Santa
Want to watch me stitch Leigh Designs' Blue Russian Santa?  You've come to the right place!  First, here are the eight Russian Santas in the series.  Mine is called Northern Light Santa. http://www.leighdesigns.com/Grp833x.html

UPDATE:  Leigh Designs released a series of eight Russian Winter Maidens to be companion pieces for the Russian Santas in November 2014.  A stitch guide for Snow Maiden (written by me) is already available and stitch guides for Pretty Poinsettia (Sandy Arthur), Silver Bells (Pat Miller) and Woodland Belle (me again) are also available from us or from Leigh Designs when you shop orders the canvas for you.  As mentioned below, shop stitch guides for Snow Maiden (3 Kittens) and Golden Maiden (Enriched Stitch) are also available.  Here they are for your viewing pleasure:

I'll keep adding to the bottom of the list as I talk about stitching this piece.  The list of materials used is under a separate tab, by the way.

Questions?  Just email me at chilly hollow at hotmail dotcom and I'll get back to you within a day.  Remember, latest posting is at the bottom.
