Toy Gatherer Update

I've been working my Toy Gatherer rotation. I've completed the stitching on the bottom of the piece. I've decided not to put the various "Santa Claus" names in the corners. I just don't think the writing looks substantial enough for these areas. I'm currently doing the backstitching on the top. I just have to do the right side, and I'm ready to wash it in preparation for beading.

To do the beading, I'm going to need some extenders for my q-snaps. The piece is just slightly too large for the 17x11, and I don't want to put the stitching under the snaps. Lord knows how much longer this piece is going to take...I only started in 1995.
