Isn’t this the cutest needlepoint Santa? I purchased him at the Art Market at the Museum at the International Quilt Study Center in Lincoln, NE a few weeks ago. The booths were filled with all varieties of art work for sale with at least part of the profit going to the IQSC.
I was temped by several items but this small Santa just stole my heart. It works into my Santa collection as I don’t have one like it and there was room to fit it on the fireplace mantle with a the majority of my other Santa figurines/dolls. If I counted right there are 28 different Santas displayed on the mantel this year. Walking around the house and looking for other Santas I found 11 more sitting in other places plus my pencil Christmas tree that is decorated only with Santa ornaments. If I get a chance to photograph them I will share close ups of more of them on a later post. When I look at each of them when I unpack them I think to myself…”this one is my favorite.” Then I unpack the next and say the same thing. I guess it is a wonderful thing to love them all!
