Last week I was given this Santa on a chopper stocking that had seen better days. It needed a good repair shop and it found me. Poor thing his harley's spokes were coming out, his guitar had upped and git, his glue was showing, the chrome on his sequins had nearly disappeared entirely and his leg was about ready to be fall off entirely.
Next up was this snowy fellow. He had been started but it just turned out those kits take a lot of work and time sewing all the little details. It just couldn't be done before Christmas eve with all the other obligations to a working mom these days. And frankly if you don't enjoy it its just not worth it. Me, I enjoy all those little details, I love it and get into a little sewing groove.
TADA! He looks so happy.
The third stocking rescue this weekend was this one. Poor Frostina was bald, had barely any sparkle to speak of, her squirrel friend was missing, someone had used glitter glue and regular glue when they got too frustrated to sew some of the details, no ornaments were up and her pet chihuahua just wasn't feeling the Christmas spirit. So like a sewing angel I swooped in just in time to save Christmas...like superhero with a cape and maybe a sequined 'M' on the front (for Momtastic of course) no spandex though *shudder*.
My husband apparently lives in Christmas ignorance not knowing the traditional Christmas chihuahua who runs around on stubby little feet, tail in the air, ears perked spreading holiday cheer and eating candy canes throughout the land...or was that the legend of the doberman pinscher?
Ok tons more to sew before Christmas, gotta stitch! What will you create today?
