Pillow #7

This is Santa peaking in a frosty window of your house that is surrounded by evergreen trees. The stars are shining brightly in the dark blue sky. It is bad my camera hasn't captured the gold bright light of the stars finished in Eyelet stitch. I hope as soon as all pillows are put together they will have absolutely different look.

This is my own idea and my own design. I used 7 different kinds of stitches: French Knots, Eyelet Stitch, Smyrna Stitch, Elongated Smyrna Stitch, Satin Stitch, Cross Stitch and Half Cross Stitch. Guterman Silk, DMC, Gold metallic thread were used to complete this design - 12 different colors total.

Today it was a very good day full of inspiration.

Here comes a French knotted Santa's beard. Look, he is smiling to you! Ho-ho-ho!
Now I need to think about those corners.

What does the start of Pillow #7 remind you? It is a little red top of Santa's hat. Ho-ho-ho! He is coming!
