This why I can’t get any work done.  Here is what goes on in my studio while I am trying to work.

Natalie, my 12 year old comes up with great ideas for dolls. This is the her version of a snowman who needs to take up shaving his under arms.

I finished up two more Shepard Santas from the Cheswick & Co. pattern. I did not do sheep with them, although I love the sheep. I forgot to retake a picture of these guys. When I originally took the picture the one on the left didn’t have his eyebrows, he has them now.

I also did three more Olde Scrooge’s from the pattern by My Primitive Saltbox. Pam from the Rusty Bucket wanted more for her Holiday Open House that is in a couple weeks.

I completed some stitchery pillows.

Alice colored this one for me.

These two pillows were made for something else but after completing the Santa stitchery I happened to lay it over the pillow and when I looked at it I thought I really liked it on the pillow. They actually look very nice and prim.

This one is half the size of the one above and I colored the stitchery.

Tonight I will be working on a quilt block I was hired to do. My customer has a quilt block for a family quilt she needed done and she doesn’t do any embroidery or anything. I need to finish this project up so I can finish up some ornaments I have been working on.

Well, that is all for now. I have been playing on Facebook and neglecting my blog, I feel so guilty. I will try to behave myself.

I hope everyone is having an awesome weekend and finding a little stitching time!

Jennifer I thought I was the worst at not getting things done, and I think I still am because at least you have the santas to show for your efforts...

That snowman does need a razor for xmas. It is very funny.
