November 5, 2018--Have stitched as much as possible on this cutie. Now need to find a white, loopy yarn for the beard. Janet Zickler Casey's instructions call for RG Fluffy Fleece in white, but that is no longer manufactured. What's available is Fluffy Fleece in an ecru color which I think is too dark. When I asked Janet for a substitute, she suggested going to a yarn shop and finding a "chenille" style yarn. Perfect. Now to go shopping.

January 17, 2016--Have begun stitching this adorable santa ornament designed by Janet Zickler Casey. Found this cutie on eBay. Hope to find more of these santas either on eBay, SNS, or on Facebook needlepoint seller sites.
