Filed under: Needlework in Progress, Santacicle

At the ANG Seminar in October 2010, I took this half-day class taught by Janet Zickler Casey called Santacicle. I love icicles & Santas – so, I gravitated to this project.

There isn’t a lot of stitching that I could get done in 1/2 day. Yet, Janet discussed how to stitch all the sections – so, it moved at quite a rapid pace. Some of the beard was done during class & then worked on when I first returned from class. Since then, I got distracted on other projects. There are some new threads for me to work with such as Metallic Ribbon Floss which is what I’m using now to cover the Perle Cotton on the beard . . .

I was in that class! I would have said HI if I would have known I followed your blog. This was fun to stitch. Make sure you add a row or two of stitches around the outside for finishing. I did not do this on my first JZC Santa and finishing was $90.00. Ouch!

And, I’ve got you in my list over in bloglovin’ which I have been remiss in reading. Thanks for tip on finishing as this is my first JCZ & I see you used tent stitch. Thanks again & maybe see you in TX in 2011.
