Hiya. Here's my finish. His coat trim was supposed to be cream 738, and the beard and moon in Ecru. Not sure if I made the right choices in color changes. I stitched the trim last so it will be an easy removal and something tells me it will be 738 when it gets to the sewing machine for finishing.
And an idea of size difference.
I want a few Santas larger than the ornaments for bowl fillers and shelves. There are two that I like, a little larger than this blue one, in book 53 (bottom corners) and I want to do both. Not sure if that is what's next - or another from 88 - or maybe #62 Kris Kringle. For Cathie J (you're no-reply) the Santas are all Prairie Schoolers and I refer to them by the book number instead of chart name.
My sister's car broke down again and I hope it doesn't cost me too much! I took her to the church this morning before my therapy, to make pierogis. Oh how I wish I could find dry cottage cheese again, our favorite type of pierogi and palacinke (nalesniki). I like my dough better than the church's. It has sour cream in it and is so silky, easy roll, and quick pinch! Enough about food. That monster machine hasn't helped with the girth increase from Halloween candy.
I got the windows washed with Dawn and hose rinsed yesterday so today will be an easy wipe with Cinch and my microfiber glass rag. The hose was already put away but I pulled it back out and left it stretched in the yard for hours so the woodpeckers could see it. Hopefully they will remember and fear the jumping woman with the wild hair and jet stream. Like they care. They're at the top of the second story where the water jet becomes a trickle, drumming a tune called Squirt Me If You Can.
Have a happy hump day - and Happy Birthday to Chris!
Thanks for visiting.
