Another kit from Cross stitch Crazy (211)and a new medium for me, vinyl aida. The kit contained patterns and makings for a Santa and a Fairy.
I have made the Santa, he starts out flat and looking a little odd.

Then turned into a cone he looks a bit more the thing.
Now I won't be turning my back on normal aida but this stuff is quite fun to use.
Oh and that is not quite the end of this post, the kit also provided a needle, now either I don't know my own strength or this is the softest needle I have ever used. Never before have I had a needle bend like this. Madly it became an obsession to finish the project with the same needle I started with no matter how much it began to bend. Threading it was the hard part as the bend also became a twist.

As with the penguins in my earlier post, the Santa Cone went into work to participate in the Christmas Charity day. However, I did not find quite as sparkly a resting place. Instead he sat atop of a jug of roses that sits on my desk (there are many many of these jugs of roses through the office courtesy of a senior manager)
