Well, it is looking like Christmas around here, with all the Christmas things I have been working on, Santa, snowman bodies everywhere. I got some reindeer ornaments finished up yesterday and today. The top picture of reinder are from my pattern #426 Santa's Reindeer. These make up real fast. I stain the bodies with the tan rit dye, then after they are finished, I rub on the brown shoe paste polish on them to give them a more grubby look. I think I am going to display these in crock at my shows this year.
These next reindeers are from my In Flight pattern #428. I put a bow around their necks this time and some greenery. Another quick project to make. I am offering a blog special on these 2 patterns. For this week only, I am offering the e-patterns for $4.00 each so check out the side buttons to to order.
I had to go fabric shopping today, had to go buy a patriotic print. Of course, most of the patirotic fabric is gone now. They had a bunch of fall and Christmas fabric laying on carts still packaged in the shrink wrap. I wish they would have had it already on the shelf. Fall flowers starting to show up on the shelves. Can't wait, I do not like summer and heat.
One week from today, I will be getting everything ready to go on our cruise on Saturday. I did get whole bunch of new clothes. I somehow have managed to loose about 15 pounds these last couple of months. I had a stomach problem and didn't eat for a few weeks and got used to not eating much. I stopped drinking so much sweet tea and bought the Crystal light tea that is only 5 calories. I have been eating a lot of fruit and yogurt and it is working. It was easier than I thought it would be, finally after I started seeing the pounds come off, it gave me the motivation I needed to continue.I have about 15 pounds to go and I will be happy. Don't know how much I will gain back on the cruise though.I bought me a kindle from Amazon books, got it yesterday and have been buying and downloading books to take with me. I love to read, I have to admit I love the Romance books with the Alpha male's. I had to restrain myself, I had purchased and downloaded 10 before I realized how many I had.
Here is another freebie I offered last year. The Mouse in the matchbox. Just check out the free download box at the bottom.
After I get back from vacation, It will be time for a check up at the doctors, and hopefully a good report. I plan on getting back to work full steam. I got my acceptance to my favorite one day show, I was able to get 2 booths this year. So I need to have lots to fill it.
Well that is about all for now. Happy Fourth of July to everyone and stay safe.
