Santa's back.

Yes, here he is. I added his moustache using the Peluche in a Slanted Gobelin stitch in towards his face. This is a strongly napped fiber and care must be taken to thread up so that the stitch creates the fluff you are looking for. Then if you look closely, you will see I also Satin stitched in his lips.

He looks distinctly worried now! Wonder if he thinks the reindeer ate all the cookies?

He is looking a bit anxious, for sure - maybe he's tired of being groomed for the big job ahead. But nevertheless - he's looking fine!! Good job.

That is an amazing thread you have used for his moustashe. Do you have to pull the 'loose' threads to get the effect?

Hi Pat,

I haven't started on mine as I'm still waiting on fibers. :-(

He's looking great!
