Santa's still singing..poor old dear!!

Yeapers....the old man is still singing. The old man as in Santa...not the hubbikins..hehe!! Just thought I might need to clarify that. NOT that I am calling my hubby old....I would never do that!!!

I have been twisting yarn for what seems F O R E V E R now and am ready to get on with it. He is looking rather handsome, I must say. The twisting around him to plump him up isn't that's the sewing it around to make it look like a sweater that takes so dang long. It's worth it though...I think...I mean most of it will be covered up with his why am I doing all this? Well, it's one thing to not make toes that won't ever be seen but I just can't have a nakked undressed Santa....I mean...really...I just can't do it. ^_^

Here's some WIP photos of where I am at the moment with this character. Notice Santa sitting on his schtick watching and OMGOSH, YES..he is still singing that darn song!!! I wish he would sing it from off fa fa away.   (Since I said Santa on a stick...I just had to say a Peanutism. Just love Jeff fa fa DunHAMM.)

Here's a closer shot of him so you can see the sewing of the sweater. I still have a good bit to do on his body before I can attached his head. I'm ready though....I want to work on his cloak and goodie bag and stop the dang singing!!!

Until next time...........Hugs,


  1. OMG how cute is Santa? He is awesome.

  2. He is going to be one very handsome Santa.
