Anyway I asked him if he wanted me to make him one and he said I probably wouldn't have time. Well.... he sort of got that right! Between working in my studio, household stuff, making arrangements so that I can sit at the hospital tomorrow while my Mom has cataract surgery I probably didn't need another project right at the moment!
But I thought to myself...... what if it were to be a real quickie little snowman..... something that wouldn't matter if someone decided to snatch it from his desk at the newspaper office!
Grabbed a piece of natural wool..... one of those cheapie plastic star ornaments for the base..... hand stitched a snowman shape..... stuffed with batting and let some peak out the bottom to look like snow... sewed by hand onto the star base.... tied a wool worm ( strip of wool) around for scarf...stuck straight pins in for buttons..... used an orange marker to color the end of a toothpick and broke it off and stuck it through wool for the nose...... black marker for eyes.... DONE!
A real quickie for a real sweetie!
Now.... onto more important matters!! LOL!
I still have some Red House Feather Tree patterns on linen available for $25.00 which includes the postage to USA and Canada. You can email me at email@example.com if you would like one to hook up real quick like for Christmas! Hmmmm think I'm noticing a theme here..... quick is good though when it turns out better than expected!!
