  11. I love the Santa! My grandmother use to make these and she would be 110 if alive today. She made a wreath, too, and put special beads on it shaped like a leaf. I have looked for these beads but have been unable to find them to purchase in today's world. Did you publish? Just wondering where in the world she would have gotten your pattern. Now I can make them! Thank you!

    1. Thanks Carolyn. I designed and published the Santa pattern on my blog only. It's not the same pattern as your Grandmothers - most likely similar because all Santa's look alike, but not the same. :)

  12. Hi Debi, Remember me? Marilyn, from the crochet group. I check a few sites that add new patterns pages every day. This page came up today. It was so nice to "see" you again. Hope all is well. I'm in NY right now, visiting 3 grandchildren. I'm guessing you still have or can find my email address - I'm also on FB. Give me a holler, if you feel like it. Regards to your hubby & family. Sending hugs, Marilyn
