New Finish Yo Ho Ho Ho Pirate Santa

Hi Everyone
Just a quick note hoping everyone had a great holiday...I sure did with my family...but then I always have a great time whenever I can spend time with them.
We ate, we laugh and we shared...a little too son was sick but we insisted he join us so he shared his next day my daughter wasn't feeling well and neither was I so everyone stayed home....:( .. I ended up with exhaustion and elevated blood pressure that caused severe swollen legs (sorry to be so graphic) and have been bed ridden ever since (good time for I barely made it to Friday SAT..but I did stitch for a few hours and worked on Witchie Poo and a little on Earthdancer... As soon as I find my camera, it's gotta be among the boxes and wrappings I will download the pictures of the finished xstitch gifts I made for my kids.. I took this one and had downloaded before I did the final finish so I am showing you a before wrapping. What I finally did was insert it in a little jewelry box and gave the pink to my daughter in law (her favorite color), blue to my daughter (her favorite)..with little bracelets in side..was going to make earrings to match but no time...the Michael Powell tree to my son...Rudolph to my grandson..besides their other gifts then of course the rest of the gang got their store bought regular gifts.
this is actually the pink but it is washed out..sorry..

Well gotta go.. headache is among us..time to do some shut eye in darkville..

As always, thank you for stopping by and please leave your comments since they are the only way I will know you have stopped and shared with me...after all they are the footprints of where you have been and ...I really love them..

I love the Santa Pirate it looks great.

Nice to read you had a wonderful Christmas. Christmas in the States is much more celebrate also than in Belgium. I have been living in the States for one year as an au pair in 1993. I had the chance to celebrate all the American Holidays and that was so much fun. I do miss it so much, I had such a wonderful time there.
We celebrate more New Year's eve and than presents are given. On Christmas we give a small present. But I already made 3 stockings in cross stitch(have one more to do) and I will hang them on next year and fill them up like they do in the States.

Hope your headache is already gone.
Take care!
