Afternoon off

Well not really but it seemed like it.   I was home by 3 on Friday and tore around the house catching up on what I have let slide the last week.    I think that is the hardest part (for me) when working extra hours.   The accumulated mess that I am too tired to deal with when I get home starts to get on my last nerve but anyway....

Even though I was dog tired Thursday night I pushed on right from work to my EGA meeting.   I am glad I did.   Deb S. from my Delaware guild taught a class at my NJ Guild.     She showed us the basics of adding a beading edge to a finish.  Check it out.....here's my doodle cloth.   It was easier to do than it was to photograph!



Next up, I vegged out on the couch last night catching up on some DVR'd shows and did the finishing on O Tannebaum.   He's a bit lumpy in places and the bag inside that is weighted with pellets and sand keeps shifting.    Hmmm.....got to think of a remedy to punching him into shape!






Compared to my cup of tea and my glasses, you can see how big he is.   Can't wait to put him out for Christmas!

Weather looking up for weekend.......hope to enjoy the outdoors.  Happy stitching!

The beaded edge looks interesting! And your Santa looks great ~ I got a chuckle out of you saying you needed to punch him into shape! Glad he's not the real Santa, or you would be getting a lump of coal for Christmas!!!

I love this big Santa but I don't recognise the design. Can you let me know which designer this is? It's indeed a perfect Christmas decoration!
Thanks!
