Happy & Sorta Sad Dance

The really good news is that I have finished Santa Clothes!! And I did it in the month I had a goal to do it in - whooo hoooo!! Now for the sorta sad news... When I finished stitching this late last night, I was really tired, but I couldn't wait to press it and sew the buttons on. So, in my half asleep way, I went to press the piece. I didn't even think about the fact that the iron was set on steam. Well, you guessed it - one of the over dyed flosses ran. I am not sure you will be able to see it because I took this picture this morning and there wasn't much light. The part the ran the worst was Santa's bag, and there is a button that covers some of the run, but not all of it. So, I am just going to think about it as it is a laundry piece after all, and maybe Santa's bag would run after all its abuse. You buying it? Nope not me either, but I am still going to hang it up during Christmas season.


I am going to pull some thread and fabric tonight and stitch something new which should not take long. I will show you what it is when I am finished.


I was really thrilled at all of the wonderful comments I got on my last blog even after it was so loooonnnng! Thank you all so much! So, until next time have a happy, healthy, stitchy time!

You could try a bit of bleach or stain remover on a cotton bud , it may help a bit .
Looks lovely anyway . X

I had to search to find it, but when it's yours, you see EVERYTHING in bigger than life size. Just a thought, but how would you feel about adding one more stitch all around the bag and ties to make it a bit bigger and cover that much of it?

I had the same thought as Charlene, Beth--could you make his bag bigger? I think that might just solve the problem! It is a very cute finish, though--can't wait to see what you're working on next...

Great finish...you get a gold star! It is so cute. I don't think it is that noticeable, but agree with Charlene. You could also make the bag a little bigger.

Can't wait to see what's next....

It's a pretty piece, I can't see where it ran, but sorry that you can.
