Pirate Santa!

I've been trying not to be so one-sided lately - you know - only focused on writing. Of course, with the deadlines, that's been a little tough, but I'm trying. This is a craft project I've been working on since we went on vacation in July. Mostly, I work on it on car trips and Friday nights at Brynn's while watching Supernatural. But I finished it yesterday while visiting my dad! I still need to frame it, but here's my first finished cross stitch project of the year.

Scroll down to see all the pics. ;)











Yup - it's Pirate Santa - complete with candy cane peg leg and hook and a little pewter treasure map.

Words can not describe how much I love pirate Santa.

I got really confused at first because I only looked at the first photo and I was all, "What is it?"

Scroll down, Margaret. Always remember to scroll.

Bronwyn Green said...

LOL! I added a note about scrolling down! ;)

It looks like a lobster morphing into Santa.

I love it!
I'm still working on a stocking for my middle nephew...maybe I'll get it done this year. It's a big complicated one with lots of beads and couching. Want it out of the way so I can finish the Dolphin Fairy pattern I have.

@ Margaret and Chris - LOL!!! I'll remember to tell people to scroll next time I do this. :)

@ Jen - Strangely enough, my niece asked if I was making a lobster when I'd first started it.

@ JC - Ooooh - I wanna see pictures of both!

@ Gigi - This was a pattern, but I do sometimes make up my own. And yes! Send me a picture! :D

@ Kim - Oh the unicorn! I can't forget that - LOL!

@ Amber - thanks, hon!

I love it! I love to cross stitch, but I don't make my own designs. And I can't tell you how long it's been since I FINISHED a project. So congrats!
