Every year I design a Snippet Santa, and every year I wonder what Santa will say/do this time. He's been caught in his pajamas, taking a spin on ice skates, hanging with his woodland friends, and all sorts of St. Nick activities.
This year I was inspired by a saying. I'm not sure it's totally "politically correct", but I liked it. Hope you like it, too! This seems like a great saying for our 20th Anniversary here at L*K. I think we are "old school", working in the needlework biz...or at least, we're OLD!
Now I don't want Santa 2016 compared with a grouchy old man I just prefer to think of him as "old school". Imagine how the jolly old man works all year getting ready for the big day, and someone cheerfully quips "Happy Holidays!". Santa may sigh a bit.
I stitched Santa on 32 ct. natural light linen. You can choose your favorite fabric. I popped the jolly old elf in an antique-y white frame. The design is square, so it would also make a darling pillow or other fun finish - so many options.
I aimed for an "old school" color theme this year with more muted Christmas colors. Old School Santa is embellished with 3 antique white snowflake buttons. These are available in (optional) embellishment pack. Otherwise, snowflakes are graphed and can be stitched.
We're busy making Santa '16 Embellishment Packs, and our Santa Snippet just returned from the printer...where I'm sure he lifted everyone's spirits.
Here comes Santa Claus...but not until after August 15, when we ship to needlework shops around the world.
Here's what else is coming soon. Check back for more sneak peeks (Pumpkin Pocket is coming later this week), and scroll back for previous post on Tiny Tidings XXI.
