February finish

Hi all.  This is my finished item for February.
I know I am a little early for posting but we are heading off on our five month travels in one week so I had to get this finished before we left.
This project has been around in my PiP box (Projects-in-Progress) for quite some time so joining the Elves gave me motivation to get it finished. It is called "Subversive Santa" and is a design by a Victorian designer at Smee Designs. The original is a redwork project using mainly backstitch - I've just given it my own personal touch by using a variety of stitches and adding a few embellishments. The sashing and border fabric is 'Season's Greeting' by Fabri-Quilt.

I did finish a project in January - which was another of those PiPs in the Dreaded Drawer 3 (see my blog for more detail on that story - www.1cr8ivMiss.blogspot.com.au ). The four bears are candlewicked and I just added a narrow binding and stitched them to a pillowcase. This will go with the quilt I made for my great-niece last Christmas.

So two projects finished - thank you Elves for giving me the motivation to finish these PiPs.
Happy stitching, NannaRay
