Beading finish

I fell in love with this guy years ago when I first of all got my hands on Issue 66 of Jill Oxton's Cross Stitch and Beading but it took me until earlier this year to get the beads together for him.
I picked the last ones up at the bead fair back in May on my birthday and started him a few days later. He got put aside for a while as I worked on a gift for a friend but that's come to a standstill for the time being until I can get to a different bead shop to pick up more of the one I've run out of. So he came back out a few days ago and I finished him this morning.



I'm thinking of starting either this or this next ready for Christmas

He looks so real and I am sure it was no easy stitch to have him look so real. Makes me wonder what he is thinking?
I love both of the selections for your next piece. I do love stitched snowman, so I am not much help, as I do like the Santa's just as much.

I think I have that Santa pattern. I'd love to see you do it. Maybe it would give me the courage to try. :)
