First is the 2008 Prairie Schooler Limited Edition Santa. I stitched the 2003-2008 Santas for my baby sister but most of those were framed and gifted long before I started blogging and photographing my stitching. Hence, no photos, to my regret.
Prairie Schooler Santas are something of a favorite of mine. I enjoy stitching those of their annual Santas that represent a concept or craft that is imnportant to me. This Santa represents Peace on Earth to my way of thinking. There is also a nod to the whole concept of the Winter Solstice with the Sun, Moon and stars ... reminding us that early Christians had to embed their feast day within an existing celebration to avoid being noticed and persecuted.
Next come the crafting Santas:
A sewing Santa
A quilting Santa
A Santa who embroiders
And a knitting Santa
And the final entry for today, this Homespun Elegance Santa stocking that I made for my husband.
I'll be showing other Santa's throughout the week. Stay tuned!
