Didn't get as much stitching done yesterday as planned ... though I did finish all the cross-stitching of the Santa figure and began the backstitching/outlining. This morning I stitched for an hour and half before getting ready for work and completed all the DMC 3371 backstitching in the Santa figure. Now all that remains to stitch: backstitching in face, hands and hair; the button motif in the upper right corner; and the long-stitched pine boughs in both upper corners. It shall be finished today or tomorrow and then on to the Crabby All Year project for the holiday weekend. I also hope to find tinme to do some sewing finishes during the holiday weekend.
