There was quite a lively discussion on Facebook the other day about The Santa. I had just seen him at market, along with Mrs. Santa, so I was able to help the stitchers that just had to have it, with the designers name, which is Clarice Bethel. These pictures from market are never the best BTW!
I was not fortunate enough to have known Clarice personally, but in a way I feel that I do anyway. Her faces are easily recognizable and those mesmerizing eyes, I would know them anywhere!
The detail and the life that she puts into her faces are just amazing. Makes you want to sit down and stitch one. Mr. and Mrs. Santa would make a lovely pair to hang on your walls. Just tell you LNS when you want to order them…that they come from Sophia Designs.
This is a new canvas by the artist Penny Macleod for the collection. This one really intrigues me and I would love to stitch it!
Labors of Love, isn’t he handsome? new canvases in 2 sizes.
a little closeup! His height makes him very impessive…
and speaking of that face…the best one of all!
and until next time…keep on stitching
