Stitching Santa's Face - Sounds like a Dec. post, Right?

Sometimes I go to blogger to write a post and instead I'm reading posts! I see someone else's interesting post and then another one and another one.  Oh Dear! Does this happen to you too?

So I've torn myself away from a really great post by Pieceful Kwilter about her artistic doors. (These are worth checking out) to tell you what I've been doing.

I was so scared to start this face - I didn't know what order to do the eyes - what colors or which stitches - but as I started in, it became easy.
Mark is so happy that I'm working on his stocking. And I'm so pleased the face is turning out okay.

June is turning out to be a non sewing month for me.  I don't think I've even turned my machine on this month.  So different for me as I often sewing every day and for several hours. Instead I've been swimming or reading or playing games or having BBQ's with the family.  Oh yeah, and napping on the couch.  It's really hard to sew when you are napping.  LOL.

Happy Stitching,


  1. haha I totally do that too!
    The stitching looks great! Happy napping :)

  2. Santa's eyes are beautiful - I think You've got it figured out. Now get off this computer and go jump in the pool for me, will ya? Enjoy summer and your family. That's the important stuff. Are ya in the pool yet????

  3. I't's so hot here (90 degrees) I'll be glad to go jump in!

  4. Okay, so much to say. I LOVE THOSE DOORS! I WANT THEM! She is a hilarious writer, too. I enjoyed her post a lot. And I love her photo-bombing dog! You are doing such great work on that face. Just go after it! I haven't switched on my machine either. Lame!
