Christmas Orders all done..SANTA'S WORKSHOP IS CLOSED!!

I'm sure you hear a big sigh of relief as I completed all my Christmas orders....
I love what I do but Christmas can be overwhelming trying to satisfy all my customers... I haven't learned the word "NO" yet!! VBG
Anyway I am done and now I can get at some house keeping and preparation for Xmas gifts and the dinner..
Here are some pictures of what I was working on.. Hope you enjoy seeing them..

This dolls title is "Don't Judge A Book By It's Cover" She hasn't told me her name yet!!
It is for a lady that has received one of my dolls every year for the last 8 years . This one is a bag lady out in the cold who has lost everything and relies on charity to keep going. I always write a story to go with each doll. (too long for here) but she got a chicken or at least so she thought.... Perhaps an egg or two would be a bonus,, however the chicken turned out to be a rooster.. hence no eggs!!! etc... She is obviously happy as she has a smile to share with those she meets..
I hope Karen likes her...

The sock monkey will be going to a wee boy. I knit the sweater and touque so he would be warm on a cold winter day!!!

The bag is quite large and ready to carry just about anything. I did the 6" log cabin blocks and used denim as a contrast. I had a couople of left over blocks so I used them inside for pockets. Also another large pocket to put things.

The pink ones are for cancer patients and represents love and hope.

Hi Maggie, You have certainly been busy and creating the most beautiful things. You've been good so I'll tell Santa! Thanks for the visit and yes I am slowly getting better. I couldn't get flu shots as they ran out. Now they have them but Dr. says no because I'm sick. Go figure. Sure put a damper on the holidays for me. But I needed the rest.
May you have a joyous and wonderful holiday. Leave it to you to have heart snowflakes.Merry Christmas sequin lady!!! Sharon
PS Thinking of sewing sequins on my pajamas! LOL


wow, you have been a very busy girl!
