Ho-Ho-Ho, I'm working on Santa's.

I'm on a Santa kick.  I just finished 6 of these using a pattern by Cindy of Country-Friends.
There are 6!,  One must be hiding behind the front right one!
I also finished up 15 of these Santa ornies. 

I need to get them listed in my Etsy shop soon.  Most are going to my craft show on Oct. 1.
I must have over 100 ornies ready to sell.  It's been a busy two weeks sewing for the craft show, and filling my Etsy orders. 

Tomorrow is my Daughter's Birthday.  It's hard to have a 9/11 Birthday.   We always make the best of it. 
We are having a family dinner here to celebrate.   I ordered a bushel of cook and cleaned blueclaw crabs. Yummy South Jersey/East Coast feast!! We always have to have Jersey corn, and  mac'n cheese to fill us up while picking the crabs.  Crabs are so much work, but worth every bite. We just sit back with a nice drink, talk, and pick, and eat, and talk, and pick, and eat!!!  You can't hurry eating crabs.
Have a nice cool rest of the weekend. 


  1. Oh! Do I miss Jersey corn & tomatoes. Used to go to a big farm stand on RT. 34 on Colts Neck. Several years before we moved that stand turned in to a fancy farm store grocery. They still had great right out of the field corn. Enjoy!
