I'm getting loose
He sees you when you're sleeping

Let me entertain you

CrosssantaNow that I'm looser, it should be easier.

It's a good thing that I didn't finish my mitten last night.  If I had, I'd have wanted to take a picture.  I wanted to take a picture as it was -- well into the decreases at the tip -- but DH took the camera yesterday and didn't bring it back!  He is really, really lucky that I didn't have an FO.  That mitten just thrills me to no end; I can't believe I'm doing it.

PansySo let me entertain you with ornaments.  Fat Santa is cross-stitched on perforated paper and has seed bead buttons on his very cute coat, and jingle bells dangling from each hand.  I always liked perforated paper (especially for ornaments -- stitch, cut, make a loop and yer done) and have a couple of very old, framed mottos stitched on perf paper hanging in the living room.

I wouldn't be a very good pansy collector if I didn't have a pansy ornament, now would I?  This is one of two and it is very, very lightweight glass.  The other one has real pansy flowers decoupaged onto a gold painted ball.  Cool.

KarensantaAnd this is one of three Santas that my sister made -- one for each kid.  (Sorry for the dark pic.)  Isn't he adorable?  His face is an upside-down wooden heart.  Each has a different fabric for the hat, but they all have that stiff, curly beard, and they're big!  That girl comes up with the greatest projects and always does a very fine job.

Still not a single present wrapped and I haven't baked anything, but I think I polished off the shopping last night in only three stops!  I also went to the library and came home with Ray Romano Live at Carnegie Hall and Amy's Answering Machine -- they will join Steve Martin in entertaining me while I do the Santa duties on Christmas Eve.



Love the ornaments. Especially the Santa - you're sister is quite creative - must run in the family!

Every Xmas I send my best friend ornaments for her tree. Every year she says when they set up the tree, it's like I'm there! I love that. I miss them so much.

Consider me entertained! Thanks!

The ornaments are so special! I'm with you - no wrapping no baking yet! Oh well!


Your tree ornaments are gorgeous, I love seeing round your house.
Hope you have a fantastic christmas with all your family.
My excuse for having nothing wrapped is, if customs go through my bags then they will only open them anyway!!


I love Pat Thodes Santa's!! So fat and fun. Have a very, very Christmas, grrlfriend!
