Father Christmas

This project was 5 years in the making. I was in college at the time and it was difficult to find the time to pick this piece up. It was stitched over 2, and finished it measures 21" x 29". Neale from The Thread n' Eye did the framing and I LOVE the tree accent he cut out on the matting. Love the frame. Neale helped me choose it; he has a fantastic knack for picking the right frames and colours.
This pictures hangs on my wall year round. The colours match my room perfectly so I hate to take it down and nobody ever comments on my having a Christmas picture hanging on the wall in July. (It's probably because of the garland that I still haven't taken down from over top of the cupboards since last Christmas!)

I just tell people that it's Christmas all year long in my house.
...except of course when it's Halloween and people see the spiderwebs in my doorways; then I tell them it's my Halloween decorations.
