You better watch out!

'Cause Santa Claus is still in town!

 Santa With Cardinal
Prairie Schooler "Kris Kringle"
 
 I just love everything about these guys - the snowmen on his robe, the lines on the mittens,...
 ...those rosy cheeks, and of course...the cardinal.  :o)
Some of you asked what count I am stitching these on.  I am using 36 count for the Old World Santas and 40 count for the Kris Kringle ones as they are a little larger and all are with DMC floss.  I am changing up the colors on a few of them.

I just can't seem to get away from these jolly fellows.  I have another kitted up to start while watching football this evening.  Who are you hoping will win?  I am cheering for the Seahawks since the 49'ers beat my precious Panthers last week and I am hoping the Broncos will stampede the Patriots.  I want to see the Seahawks vs Broncos in the Superbowl. 

I have to share another picture of Glitter, this time "helping" DS2 surf the web.  LOL
Thank you all for the wonderful comments.  Have a great week!

I love this Santa! He's just so cute :D Yep, really hoping the Seahawks crush the 49s. That beating the Panthers got last week was NOT fun to watch. And I have a feeling the Broncos will win too - Manning looks unbeatable at the moment. We'll see!

Love your PS Santa Myra! I'm hoping to get back to stitching PS Santas on a regular basis this year. I only managed one last year and, of course, regretted it when it got to Christmas!!

He's absolutely sweet, this little guy. When I pulled out all my PS Santa books for this year's monthly ornament I also pulled out this one, it has really nice Santas. Yours is one of the sweetest with his cardinal. I will certainly stitch him too this year.
