santas, santas….

here comes santa claus!

“where?” ~lilly
“where?” ~ellis

well, actually, you have to look indoors…

“where?” ~lilly
“where?” ~ellis
“where?” ~otis

i’ve been working on two santas this fall.  the first one is a traditional red and white…

st. nick

the tiny stocking he carries is fully lined and functional and was a total pain to make. 

what do you think ellis?

“zzzzzzz…..” ~ellis

apparently, ellis isn’t thrilled.  maybe the next santa will be met with more enthusiasm….

santa

personally, i love the muted colors of this santa.  and, again, the stocking he carries is fully lined and functional, and was a total pain to make.

santa doesn’t have to carry his stocking everywhere.

what do you think, lilly?

“i think i’d rather play with a tiny roll of wool than put together a tiny stocking.” ~lilly

i must say, i agree with lilly.

you can see the red st. nick on my etsy shop by clicking here.  the other santa has sold.

now, we just need some snow!

be well, friends!

jack and witch…..

is it too late to be creating with halloween in mind?  what does ellis think?

“halloween? i love pumpkin seeds!” ~ellis

well, whether it’s too late or not, i have been working on two projects.  a witch…

notforgotten farm “white witch”

and a jack…

simple quiet jack

surprisingly, i got very little help with lori brechlin’s “white witch” (click here for her blog), and i was able to complete this project quickly….

white witch

you can find my “white witch” on my etsy site by clicking here.  i mounted my finished piece on a bit of wood salvaged from an antique trunk.  i love the tiny plaid original paper attached to the wood and how it’s aged over time.

my jack was a different tale altogether.  almost everyone wanted to add their paws worth….

“i’m helping!” ~lilly

“i’m helping!” ~ellis

“i’m staying out-of-the-way!” ~otis

there was more assistance, too, all i had to do was ask….

“rebecca drinks the wine. i’m in charge of the water.” ~lillykins

and, in case i was feeling a chill (in the 80 degree temps), my friends were there to warm me….

“zzzzzzz…” ~ellis and lilly

how would it be, ellis and lilly, if i were to have my lap to myself for a while?….

“what!? No! you couldn’t possibly get on without us!” ~ the elly-belly and the lilly-lou-who

so, i persevered, with the weight of two cats and finally finished jack…..

jack

jack, too, can be found in my etsy shop.

now that the temps are cooling, i think i’ll turn my thoughts to christmas.

 

whatever you do, enjoy!
