That is a wonderful piece.... and what a great price!! Lucky you!
Good luck with all your santa-stuffing.... I am working hard trying to get a Halloween cross-stitch done before Monday (I know if I don't finish it now it will sit for the next year undone!) -- and then I will start working on Christmas stitching. With snow coming in tomorrow, it will be fun to sit and work on something Christmasy!
Have a wonderful day....
