Even though sheep are still in plentiful supply in my attic of catastrophes, and someone wants a black one, because in her words, "there is one in every family", I had a change of direction and digitised Santa, because after all, there are just over 90 days to Christmas.
So here is Santa, I have sewn Santa a lot in the last couple of days, in lots of sizes. If you are wondering why there are two of every size, that is because I have done a 'rustic' one, where the satin stitch is one that offers a softer look and then there is the "proper"one. That's the one where if you cut really carefully, you won't have pokies. I did, but by Santa 12, I was losing the will to live. The 4in x 4in one even comes in a fully filled design with no applique at all. Here are some of them.
My hand is so much "clutching", as just hanging around. The left one could almost be waiting for someone to 'put a ring on it'!
Now it wouldn't be a blog post without O'Reilly. So here he is. He has been shut out of the kitchen. This is his, "oooh, your eating bacon, I love bacon, are you sure I can't come in the kitchen with you and help you eat your bacon" face!
This is not to be confused with the "I was just helping" face.
