I'd bought this pattern from Cross Patch a couple of years ago - the pattern is Jolly Santa by the Australian designer Natalie Bird of The Birdhouse Patchwork Designs - and I've been stitching it over the past few weeks. This has been hand embroidered with a red Cosmo embroidery thread and quilted very simply around the !frame" of the stitchery piece. A quick rummage in my collection of vintage buttons (a much easier job now they've been sorted into colours) and couple of buttons have been added to the tabs. One of my "stitched by" labels has been hand appliqued to the back. I've got a few of these festive designs piled up on my cutting table just waiting for me to sort out out the border fabrics and more buttons!
