I love the annual Santa designs from Prairie Schooler. This piece was stitched as a round robin with a group of friends in real life and online, probably at least 15 years ago. This piece brings back a funny little memory . . . . When my youngest child was a baby & I was home on maternity leave, one of our cats brought a baby bird into the house and let it go still alive. When our dog Buddy spied the bird, he launched himself across the room at full speed and slammed into the wall. The force of him knocked this framed needlework and a glass lantern off of the wall, sending both crashing to the floor into a mass of broken glass. Meanwhile I was simultaneously trying to deal with a crying baby, a bird on the loose, and a frantic dog. It was a scene worthy of I Love Lucy. Eventually I caught the bird, calmed the dog, and cleaned up the glass. But 13 years later, I still haven’t replaced the glass in this frame. I really should replace it to protect the needlework. But it is a funny memory in hindsight.
