Santa RR finally finished

I finally finished judith's RR project tonight. This poor project had several problems. First, I couldn't read the pattern because the backstitching lines were hard to follow. I probably need new glasses but Judith was kind enough to send me a color copy of the pattern. Then, I went on a ten day vacation and. I refuse to take someone's project with me on vacation because you never know what can happen. Then the darn pattern called for those terrible French knots and I hate. French knots! So judith was kind enough to let me use beads. I was really confused because Santa's coat called for dmc 3371 knots and. That. I brown-black color and I couldn't do that to Santa so I changed it to blue. I hope Judith likes it.
