My Homespun bin was still out from one of my other projects…and this book was on my desk…somehow they got too close and…
It was like a magical explosion happening in my sewing room! I became a woman possessed! Before I realized what had happened, I had THIS laying out on my kitchen floor!
I know…it doesn’t look all that special…but wait!!
I had to audition the wool….
…and pick the perfect red…not too orange…not too mottled! EW!
The Santa started to take shape…
But I didn’t have the right shade of yellow…I wanted a STAR quality yellow!! Sooo…out came the dye pot!
I told you…I’m talking serious Linda Blair (Exorcist) possessed here! Hubby was thinking of bringing in a priest!
I got my star quality yellow…to the left too orange…to the right too lemony yellow…in the middle…juuuuust right! Do you hear THAT heavenly music?
His face is bothering me…don’t you think he needs a mustache?
Darn…the camera didn’t pick up the mustache…maybe if you click on the picture you will see it better. What do you think? I do like a man with facial hair…haha
So there you have it…(the mustache isn’t permanently on as the plain face is growing on me. So for now, I will pin it on and decide later…)
The colours in real life are darker and more interesting…and look more like a walk in the woods!
Hopefully, today I will cut out the million and one 5 inch blocks that will form the HSTs that circle this quilt…Oh and before I forget, the name of the quilt is called ‘Old St. Nick Quilt’ and is designed by the very talented, Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings. It can be found in the book ‘Primitive Christmas’ featured at the top of the page. Be warned… never put this book together in the same room with Homespun!
Yup…it’s all in a days work!! Geeze, my head is spinning…Is the priest here yet?
Have a Sunny Sunday and Happy Stitching!~P
