Determining Naughty or Nice (A Mystery from Ruth Schmuff and David Galchutt) UPDATED

Ruth Schmuff has started her Christmas mystery class for 2016--David Galchuff's "Determining Naughty or Nice."

If you are interested, you can sign up for this class (and attend in person or via mail order) at Ruth's website.  This is going to be interesting as this piece has so much detail.  Already Ruth has performed her magic on Santa's face.

I'll update this article as Ruth posts progress photos after each lesson.

In the first update, Ruth solves the problem of how to stitch a very detailed mustache without taking forever.

Now Ruth is tackling the shadows on the clothing.

The final touches are beaded snowflakes and wired silk ribbon flowers. (I spy boucle and pompoms, too!)
