Merry ‘KrisMoose’?

Remember last year when I posted about starting my first embroidery pattern? No?  Well, you’re not the only one who forgot… I did to!  Oh as usual I had good intentions of stitching right along but, I got busy and you know how that goes!  I finally got back around to it and it’s FINISHED!  I ordered a 2.5″ charm pack go around the embroidery and make a pillow – the fabric line is called ‘In from the Cold’ by Kate Spain – I absolutely love it!!!- matter of fact I’m making a mental note to get more!


My very dear friend, and Swedish American Artist, Karen Forsman Wakem did the Artwork for this design.  I’m IN LOVE with my KrisMoose!




And let’s not forget my Swedish Santa!  How much fun is he!!

I had so much fun with this pattern… sometimes I forget how relaxing it is to stitch by hand.  For me it’s the perfect time of year in New England… with the nights getting crisper and soon, a fire in the fireplace and the smell of Autumn in the air  – I feel so cozy just thinking about it!  I am itching to start the next embroidery project!



You can find the pattern for my ‘Merry KrisMoose’ on Craftsy!

    That is absolutely adorable. I LOVE it. I love the old Santas. Years ago I used to buy the plaster forms of the old fashioned Santas and hand paint them. Sadly, I gave them all away along with an entire hand painted Christmas Village as well. Oh I wish I had kept at least one of the Santa statues for myself. They were each about 14 inches high and turned out just amazing. I hope you are keeping this pillow for yourself.

      Vicki, I actually rarely keep anything for myself! But this IS one of the things that I am keeping so it’s funny you mentioned it! I can’t believe you gave your village away… But sometimes when I’m in ‘purge’ mode i go overboard and I have regrets too! Lol
