On 4th October 2014 I begged my hubby to take me to our local Hobbycraft store. I so badly needed a Christmas themed cross stitch kit. When we got there I picked up a few different designs but couldn’t decide on a final one. You know how it is when you go into a store and see loads of things you absolutely love? Well that’s what happened to me I wanted everything but I had a budget and promised I would only purchase one thing.
Eventually I settled for a Dimensions kit called Santa’s secret. It was absolutely gorgeous!! When we got home I was desperate to open it! I was a bit taunted at first as there were things in the instructions I had never heard of before and there were also metallic threads which I had never stitched with before!
Anyway an hour later I got stuck in and started it! I loved every bit of this pattern! Even the couching of the glasses which really stressed me out! I was so eager to finish my WIP (work in progress) in time for Christmas! I even had a bet going with my husband. He thought I wouldn’t get it done in time, I soon proved him wrong though! Then on the 4th of December I finally got it finished! I’m ever so proud of him. I think he’s a wonderful Santa and his eyes seem to have a twinkle in them! Here he is all ready to be framed!
