Our Thanksgiving-marathon extravaganza has come to a close. The time I had to spend with my family energized me more then drained me as I had expected it to. Funny & convenient how it worked out that way.
The week spawned some unexpected thrifting and crafting, with folks that really know what thrifting and crafting is. I sometimes feel isolated in my obsessions, but all it takes is a little vino and Tryptophan to realize that all “this” is really part of my genetic make-up & a small part of the master plan.
Some years, Thanksgiving is a time to Give Thanks. Other years, it’s serves as an opportunity to remind me of the things that I'm thankful for. This year proved to be the latter.
Not that I enjoy chaos, or am unable to live for the moment, but my thrifting moments these past few days has launched me into total Christmas-crazy mode. In a good way.
More on the goodies I found later, but first this…
Some cutting, & a little stitching....
& lots of lots of fun poly-fill (by-far his favorite ingredient of this project)!
I had so much fun watching him assemble Santa as he ooh’d & aah’d at his work.
Voi’la! Seamster & his little doll too.
P.S. Little wee Seamster and I picked up the pre-printed Santa fabric at an estate sale for .25 cents (he picked it out, can you imagine the excitement I felt?). Have you seen these in stores? My aunt fell in love with it & I promised her a google search. With little luck, since I don’t even know what it's called. I've seen them before at antique fairs printed on old flour sacks from the 30's(?)
have a good trip!
