Love my new Santa!

Isn't it so nice to get lovely little packages in the mail ~ and this is what the mailman delivered yesterday - this sweet Prairie Schooler Santa ornament from dear Harmien! I love him! He's not taken his place on my Christmas tree just yet, I have him on my desk so I can look at him during the work day.

And I'm not just counting down to Christmas, I'm counting off those work days left. Luckily for me, the clinic that I work for is closing down between Christmas and New Year's and that means time off work!!! So holidays for me start on Christmas Eve!

Do you know about the new blog that has started for a Prairie Schooler exchange? Of course I couldn't resist signing up for this. And there is also a blog starting up for a Peppermint Twist SAL. I'm thinking of joining that one too! I love the New Year coming with so many great possibilities.

The PS Santa is very smart with that blue linen! I'm glad you joined the PS group too. I've missed out on a lot of the older charts so I am looking forward to seeing some stitched up.

Merry Christmas from snowy Vancouver!

Thanks for the info on the Peppermint Twist SAL. I just might sign up for that one if I can get my act together in time!
Love your PS Santa especially on that blue fabric.
The crystal tree looks fabulous! I was at the Eaton Center late fall and they were just starting to decorate but that tree wasn't up yet. Too bad I missed it!
A very Merry Christmas to you and your family Wendy!

Well, Wendy, we really rated this Christmas with a genuine Harmien ornament! Did you see my old world santa, too??? I love yours, as well. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stitching year and thanks for being my friend. Hope 2009 brings you all the best of everything.
