Alternate Transport?

I guess if you have super powers like Santa, you're not limited to traditional animal based transport!

This piece was a painted canvas I picked up at my local needlework store's annual garage sale.  I used fibers from my stash for Santa and the duck's beak, eye, and feet.  I spent a lot of time coming up with a good stitch for the bulk of the duck (but I was not forward thinking enough to write it down).  I'm also really pleased at how the background came out.  Most of it is dark blue DMC floss. . .but there are also "clouds" of closely matching blue metallic that really turned out well. . . hard to see in the photo though.

  1. The metallic "clouds" in the sky are beautiful. I could see them well once I clicked on the photo and got an enlargement. This is a charming piece, very well stitched and a perfect fantasy piece for Santa.
