my giveaway last week went great, and I plan on doing another one very soon. Leslie emailed me and told me she received it and loved it. I am so glad. I have been working on a new Santa pattern. I am going to call this one Mr. Jingles. He is approx. 27 inches tall, dressed in red flannel and holding a prim candy cane. I love the way he turned out. I am trying to get my new stuff done for the deadline of Country Sampler at the end of the month. So far, he is one of the items that will be in that issue for Christmas. I have a couple of more ideas I hope to get done this week.
Everything has sort of slowed down for the moment, it gives me time to get some of those patterns I have been wanting to make done. I have 3 boxes of patterns, I haven't had time to make yet. I guess I am a pattern addict, can't resist buying patterns and fabrics. I told myself, I am going to use up my fabric I have had on the shelves for awhile now, instead of buying new. Hope I can hold out. I can't believe how much I have. If I could get all that sewed up I would have tons of stuff ready for the shows this year.
I actually bought a few wood patterns and want to try to make up some wooden Santa's and snowmen. My husband has the saws and sanders, just has to pull it all out of the shed for me to use.
Well, that's about all for today. I am going to be making sachets this weekend, got all my supplies and hopefully will get some made and posted this weekend. My friend Carmen, bought me one a local prim store and it was called a moth chaser, has a prim sheep on the outside. It is just a muslin bag with drawstring and smells so good. I have to try some for myself.
So keep a lookout this weekend, I will post about a new giveaway.
