No leaves today!

Greetings!  Just came back from the chiropractor and will see the brutal therapist tomorrow.  Stopped at the antique mall and it is loaded with ugly old furniture.  
Really.  Packed!  I brought home this little milking stool that had been there for quite a while.  Some days I feel like buying something and this was the only item that appealed to me.  It's so small!  6 1/2 x 8 inches.  I think that's what I liked most about it.
 After several days of pushing that machine, today will be a break.  Tomorrow it will be warmer and the windows will get washed.  I hate that.  So how's your week starting? 
My mail yesterday brought the new issue of Simple Life and also this Early Homes.  Oh my.  A quick browse and I can see this issue is one of their best.  Many times the features are too formal but this issue is clean primitive.  I order from the publisher's website because no one around here carries it. This is the email and phone if you're interested and can't locate a shop.
Or call her at (978) 282-3170 during business hours, ET
My next Santa is the smaller one from book 58, that is holding the crescent moon and has stars on his coat.  I left the trim and the moon for last because I'm not sure of color.  The starts that will be backstitched on the blue will be the beard's color and the moon.....maybe a very light gold?  Will find out soon enough because I want to finish him this evening.
Just a reminder, if you are interested in anything from The Essamplaire, their 20% off sale on charts, kits, and books is on until the 9th.
I'm going to relax with my McD's coffee and make a plan of which room's mess I will tackle first.  Maybe a laptop toss out the window will be at the top of the list.  The touchpad is going crazy and pulling me down with it.
Hello and welcome to new followers!  I appreciate each and every one and want to thank you so much for taking time to visit.
Stay safe, enjoy your week!

Glad you are not pushing your machine today. Santa look great , I am just off to my sewing club , it's gone cold here and feel more like staying in by the warm fire, but alas my girls will miss me.

I love your little stool and your new Santa.. The shade of blue that you're using for Santa's coat is beautiful.
I haven't been to an antique shop in a while.. That's something that is calling me to do-----real soon !
Don't let the therapist get too brutal.. Thinking about you !

Your Santa is just too adorable! Yes I hate cleaning too! I did clean a couple of windows and my floors the other day. Next thing you know the tree will be out! Good Lord!

I love your little stool! Out here you never see a primitive. Thanks for the heads up on where to order that magazine. The shop where I used to get it has closed. The PS Santa is wonderful!

Where did you get all of these Santa patterns or are they your own? I don't know what book of 58 is.
