I'm Back!

After being in the hospital 5 times this year, the artery problem has been fixed with bypass surgery. So soon I will be able to go on my favorite walks without pain, and I am looking forward to that.

But I can always sew! I just finished a new type of Santa, an Old World Snow Santa, about 22" high. He has a painted paper clay face, and wool beard. Soft blizzard fleece overcoat with a hood.

I like his old fashion look, and will make a few more.

But, Henry the V111 is waiting to be finished. Every night as I sit in my chair, he looks out at me from his perch, wanting his coat.

Santa Time!

I feel like making an uplifting fellow, who is happy and gives things away , and promotes good will among people. That would be Santa Claus! So that's my theme this year. You can see some of my new Santas on my etsy site... http://lynnery.etsy.com/

I'm trying all sorts of full of joy faces and expressions. A first for me is a closed eyes smile. And a big laugh with open mouth. It's good to spread joy in any way.
