I have my sewing 'Cut out' for me!

This is what my dining room table looked like last week!  I had all the parts for 20 Mr Freezy snowmen all cut out and laid out waiting to be sewn ( that's 20 body's, 20 hat brims, 20 hat tops, 40 arms, 40 mittens and 40 feet!) I have everything sewn except the arms! That'll get finished sometime next week!

I love happy little Elves!

Sitting here getting my morning started, having my morning cup of tea and thinking about the little "Emmyth The Christmas Elf" Dolls I'll be working on today to fill some of my orders.

 I created him a few weeks ago and I really love how he turned out! It's fun to use other peoples patterns because ya pretty much know what it's gonna look like when your done and that it'll be cute, but I always get extra excited when it's one of my own designs and it turns out really cute cause getting it from my imagination into doll form just the way I want it isn't always easy! I'm so glad I made a template for him as I went along creating him :-D I just may have to make him a little Elfette girlfriend  to keep him company :-D

Just started building some OOAK Snowmen! I love how they are turning out! I have SO many ideas for them! This fella is called "By Lantern Light". He's already in his new home!
I already have another one in mind that's kind of similar in theme. I think what I like about this one is the warm feeling it gives me.... I envision a dark, cold snowy night in the country, a father had bundled up against the cold and gone out to chop down a Christmas tree to bring home for the family to decorate. It got dark quickly and started to snow again and the father, with his chosen tree in hand, had to use his old trusty lantern that his father gave to him when he was a little boy to help light and guide his way home. <3
