Wishing everyone Happy Thanksgiving.. The excitement is rising in this household with talk of Santa and Christmas.. The decorations are out of storage and stacked in readiness for this coming weekend.. The 1st of December is when I decorate.. I have been stitchin' away in my spare time to finish these wonderful HEIRLOOM SANTAS and wanted to share them with you all... I have used vintage fabrics for his coat and sheeps wool and horsehair for his beard..
I am firstly a wife and mother to my six children and also grandma to 3 gorgeous littleuns..I have crafted as long as I can remember in my childhood and have always sewn..In my teens on leaving school I trained as an industrial sewing machinest and have done this most of my life..when my children were young I made most of their clothes for pleasure and then a dear friend introduced me to Quilting..I have done this for the past 12 years or so and really enjoy it..I loved the American quilt designs which then pointed me in the direction of primitive doll making and have been hooked ever since..I love to go to my workroom and sew..I hope you enjoy your visit with me and sharing my prim ramblings..
