Another day...

Not accomplishing much in the way of my stitching goals...three more dishcloths is it. 

I started the day with the Invisible Fence folks who came last week and enlarged our fence line to about 3 1/2 acres for these doggies. I spent last week training Daisy and Mattie. Today was the big day to see if they understood it. So far, so good. Now we have to work with Buddy, who will be more challenging because of his fear issues. I feel so much better knowing that they won't wander off property into the woods and get lost or shot by hunters.
Mattie was exhausted and needed some lap time.

I proceeded on to moving my Patti Beck Santas from the mantle to their new home in my dining room cabinet. I love them so much that I leave them out year around. I will share them with you over my next few posts.  Daughter, Christi, gifts me with a new one every year.
This is this year's....
Isn't the detail incredible?
This woodland Santa was my first one.
And, of course a Hooker needs sheep.
In fact, two with sheep and a little free standing companion.

Then it was washing all of the glassware, deep cleaning and cooking. No stitching. Maybe tomorrow...

We are expecting ice or snow down here in Georgia. And I am hoping for a full day in my sewing room.

  • Bread fresh from the oven
  • The velvety softness of sweet Mattie 'a head
  • Soothing lip balm.

Take Care,


  1. Your Santas are fabulous. I would want to have them out all year, too! I especially like the two with sheep.

  2. Mattie has a beautiful face/head ~ part Rottie or pit? Nice Santas too.

  3. Your Santas are wonderful. I'm not familiar with Patti Beck's work.
    I hope your weather isn't too bad. Be safe.
    Hugs :)

  4. Love your Santas, what a lovely tradition from your daughter.
