Finish It Up Friday





















9:30 p.m. update...
...Well, this evening, I had some dinner with my DH...and since, have been hand stitching on these Christmas Tree ornaments. They are almost done...and so am I!









3:30 update...

I had a little lunch; enjoyed a 40 minute nap; did some housework; and prepared a package to take to the USPS. The freezing rain and snow pellets made driving a little slick!



12:30 update...
...these Santas are finished now, too! They were just waiting for their belts, which I purchased at the Nearly New Shop ... so, no two are alike. There are beans in their bottoms so they sit.

11:00 a.m. update...
...just finished these hanging Santas...I really like how their beards turned out. The belt is just tied in place and I'm still deciding if I like it...what do you think?











Today is Comp Day ... that means ... because we teachers spend 4 evenings during the school year conducting parent/teacher conferences, we get one extra day off each semester.
Now ... those 4 days are very long, because we teach from 8:10 to 3:20 and then conference from 5:00 to 9:00 ...and are back in school the next morning...
but having this day at home definately makes up for it!! I am focusing on the UFOs today!
Stay tuned to see my progress...

The belt on the hanging santa is a great touch. Everything is so cute!! Thanks for visitng my blog too. I thought about a nice pants outfit, but I think I am going to try to find a dress. I will take my camera with me and share the experience on my blog!! Thanks again for visiting!

Absolutely darling!!

I like the Santa beads out...and the belts are too cool!

I love the French knots on the ornaments...your fingers must be as tough as mine! I saw a table cloth in an antique store with a neat pattern made entirely out of French knots...the colors didn't go with my kitchen or I might have bought it...that took someone a looooong time to do...and mighty sore fingers too I am sure :)

Glad you had a "sew" day to make up for those loooong days!
