BACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN!!!

My one son left for Japan at 4:00 a.m yesterday. I stayed up with him until he left.

Ran around with my husband....took a long nap and began work on these.....(28)


.


Only have one totally done! You can get the pattern in the link below this post.



How fun is this? I am going to work a little on them today and do some other stitching. After I got my fill of these last night, the first pictures shows you how far I had gotten to. Do you just ever say....I can't just do this another minute? So I started on some other projects that have been in the works for a while. Trust me, these are fun but sometimes I just get the itching to move on.

So today....work on my Santa's a little and make my rounds to this and that. Husband is gone for three days....

My son told my husband. Dad....now that you are leaving this house is going to go to pot. Mom will have her sewing stuff all over the place. I never realized that I was a creature of habit....but let the mess commence!!!

cute Santa
get out a laundry basket and before your DH comes home again go around putting all the sewing stuff in it from the other rooms!

I'm sure you miss your son, but so happy that he was able to come back home for a visit. What a special time!

Love your Santa Ornaments. I've never seen anything like this. Very creative.

Hi Barb must have been fun having your son home? How long was he with you? I know that it is never long enough by any time is better then non.
Have fun sewing while hubby gone, no meals to make etc. The Santa's are really cute. I am just finishing the things for my Santa Swap and ready to be mailed by end of week. This was a big accomplishment for me. Now I can make some fun things for Christmas for my family. I am trying to make them all a fun pillow case to match their personality or hobby. I would love to have a week of sewing, my daughter and family were suppose to be leaving for Ecuador Dec for three months so I thought I would have lots of sewing time not having Jonah three days a week, but plans changed. Have a wonderful day. Sandra

very cute, I tend to go overboard and make a ton when I like a pattern, trying to cut back on that and just share patterns- lol

Glad you had a nice visit with your son! These are a pattern from an older Eleanor Burns quilt book. Made a lot many years ago as gift tags! Yours are cute! Yes sewing same thing over and over can get tiring. Happy Mess Making!!

Enjoy your stitching and quiet time. The Santa's are super cute.

Check your schedule, girlie, I'm thinking we should have a get together something this month. Maybe you Barb and I can do a little sew-in or maybe we can just meet up for dinner a Friday night. I'll be in touch. :D

This Santa ornament is darling. You mentioned there was a link to the pattern. For some reason I can't seem to locate the link. Can you point me in the right direction. :) Am I already on Christmas overload!?!!
