I did it!

I finally finished my Santa's 12 Days of Christmas!

Now, the earliest post I can find on my blog, Kitten Stitching, which features Santa's 12 Days of Christmas is on May 21, 2012 but I suspect that I started the SAL a few months before that - so this project has taken me over three and a half years to complete.  I must admit there were (quite) a few times where I lost interest, lost faith in my ability to finish but I overcame those times and here we are:

 I just need to decide now how to Finish each one - any suggestions?

Now, as I am pretty certain that I won't be tackling this project again in a hurry, I want to gift my lightly-used design booklets (three of them, with all twelve designs) to one of you lovely stitchers.

But, I am going to make you work for it!  Ha! Ha!

You have to decide which of the 12 days is my favourite - which may be hard as I do love them all but there is one which I particularly love!

So, please leave a comment with your guess either on this post or on the corresponding post on my blog, Kitten Stitching and on Monday, 9th November, I will draw a winner from the correct guesses.

Have a great day, everyone, 

hugs, Kaye

P.S. Love to Linda who started me on this journey.

Congrats for finishing this. Aren't they all lovely? I prefer the one with the puppet. Is it your favourite too?AriadnefromGreece!

What a wonderful accomplishment, Kaye!! I'm so glad you didn't give up on them--they are each so handsome... Hmmm...hard to pick my favorite, but I think Day 1 is mine--there is just something to classic about the partridge in the pear tree :) I would love to enter your drawing as this is one set of PS books that I don't own! Thanks for the chance...

Oh, and as far as finishing, I would probably do the same finish on each with some handmade cording surrounding little pillows that you could display in a bowl. But, that's just me--you know how I love my little pillows!!

Linda said...

Congrats on getting them all finished Kaye. Just for fun, I say #11 is yur favorite.


AnaCristina said...

wow! All are beautiful but I think your favourite is number 5!

Bette said...

I think it's the one with the fox. Congratulations on a wonderful finihs!

Shelly said...

Congrats on these great finishes! I like 7 and 10. Good luck to everyone! I have enough stash Kaye. I'll bow out of this contest!

Nurdan Kanber said...

I do congratulate you for such accomplishment! Very well done Kaye !!!!!

As per the Santas; all look indeed awesome and hard to choose any of them!

However, I am a doll collector; so number 9 is getting my eyes on :)))

Annie said...

Wow, what an achievement!!! Well done! What are your plans for them? My guess is number 10 since that is MY favorite:))

Brigitte said...

Wow, what a success! In the beginning it seems so easy to do all the twelve days but I can understand that with all the other things you want to stitch you soemtimes lose your motivation. But you found it again. Congratulations.

lynda said...

These look great! I can't wait to see your finishes. I think I will choose #6 as your fave. I'd love the chance for these charts! Thanks!

marina said...

Absolutely stunning work Kaye! My fav is # 6...... Hope is yours too!!

Rita said...

Congratulations, Kaye. These are wonderful!! I have the books so don't enter me in the contest. (...and you're way ahead of me bc I haven't even stitched one of them.) Good luck to the entrants!

Finishing idea: I can see these made into a quilted wall hanging with sashing sewn in between the Santas. I was also thinking a fabric book but I like the quilt idea better bc you could see them all at once at a glance. I can't wait to see what you come up with.

sana said...

Wonderful work! Kaye.
I love these designs very much.

Well done getting them all finished - they look amazing!
