Finished for Friday: Santa Needlepoint Pillow

I finished this pillow earlier this year and have been waiting until December to share it.   It's from a vintage needlepoint kit and it was a joy to stitch.

I've always joked that Santa looks best with his green mittens.  I don't know why I find that look so appealing to me.  A lot of vintage pictures and figurines of Santa show him with green mittens.  Here are my winking salt and pepper shakers:

Several of the Santas on my tree have green mittens too.  I think I need to make some more.

Beautiful stitching and finishing! I know what you mean about Santa and his green mittens. Hubby bought a little Santa figure for our house this week and he has bare hands - he just looks wrong. I will have to make some for him...

Great work! Several years ago, I bought a kit that's similar to the first Santa from a crafty store that was going out of business. It's still waiting to be started. It was so long ago I forgot about it until now. Thanks for reminding me about it and for sharing your gorgeous work!
