Just have the background on Jake's Santa to do and then off to the finisher. Sharon G suggested Criss Cross Hungarian for the background. I am using Gloriana and Kreinik for the stitch. I love the way he is coming out. I always use a Rhodes stitch for the checks. The sweater had to be Kalem to make it looked knitted and I decided to French Knot the fur trim on Santa's hat and pompom instead of Turkey Work. Just love how it came out. Hope Jake is going to love his Santa.
I will post a picture when I finish the background.
As soon as I am finished with this ornament, I will get back to the Thanksgiving House. Linda
