Sack it to me


















A piece of Mylar, (stencil blanks, plastic sheet, plastic canvas, flexible kitchen cutting mat) will be inserted to size if the greenery distorts it too much. 
 Heavy fusible on back, light on front.  I used the pulled linen threads to hang rusty jingle bells with the fringe, but removed them.  They may appear again, you just never know.  If you ever use stitchery to hold greens, make sure the stems are secured with plastic to prevent sap from staining.  I plan on using only one sprig, two at the most.
 
 
 
I'm on my way outside for about 6 hours of leaf blowing, but wanted to show you this. 
 Closer and closer!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
EUREKA!! Eating together in the rain!  A long way to go, but it's progress.  Squeaky is not neutered, Bud and Nitzy are, but Bud is very territorial and attacked Squeak many times.  He cries a lot and looks in the door but I can't really get near him. 
When Bud was lying on his mat for his nightly scratching, my husband alerted me to grab the tweezers.  He saw the disgusting oval shape of a bloated tick on Bud's shoulder.  He held him down and I tried to twist and remove the tick, and it came off so easily. Too easily. 
Upon closer inspection......
It was a piece of a Cheeto.  I guess the floors need swept.
It's getting late and I need to stop procrastinating - the leaves are waiting.
Thanks for visiting!
Hope your week starts well.

Hi, Marly, your new Santa finish is a beauty! I hope you will blog about the history of you and Santa sometime before Christmas...I'd love to know how it started. Do you know if Squeaky is male or female? Good luck with that...you know how my cat story went:)

Love your Santa finish!!!
I am supposed to be out washing a couple windows. Got grass cut. That was major. Just not enough hours in the day and now even less daylight hours. UGH! I hate it.

Big Santa turned out really nice and I really like your finish on it! Better a cheeto than a piece of stinky! I have a puppy that sometimes...well never mind. I am going to be on the watch for Book 58 on ebay!

Adorable finish for Mr Bad Boy.
Very happy to see Squeak and Bud sort of warming up to each other. Maybe there is hope.
Cheetos are a good thing making this a happy ending.

Pam in IL said...

Love the way you finished Santa! Know all about trying to get a tick off a furry family member, but I must say it's never been a bit of a cheeto, lol
