I had to share….my BIG finish!

~ PRESENTING ~

 “Santa of the Forest”
By: Lavender and Lace, Marilyn Levitt Imblum 
~ 50,000 stitches 
Measuring 15 x 18 inches
On 18 count natural raw linen
2/2 DMC and Kreinik 002HL








I am so proud! I have ordered the frame and a triple mat:

I wanted rich, classic and clean.
Everything should be here by February 15. Exciting!
Thank you for sharing my joy in this epic finish!

My next Santa project? 
From Treasures in Needlework Magazine  ~ Summer 1992
