I just put the final stitch in Christmas Presence — the Santa obsession is almost over!!
The piece is still on the stretcher bars — there are several (maybe 50+) threads that need to be finished and all of the grid needs to be removed. I hope to have it ready to display before the weekend is over. I will post it on my wall while I try to decide how to finish.
This next photo is in response to a question of how I keep the threads from tangling. As I complete a 10 stitch area I wind the thread from that area into a figure eight (a knitting trick) and tuck it into the fabric I keep across the bottom of the piece.
