Evil Santa

Santa can be evil.
Joseph was in the other room, freshly home from Middle School. I yelled very exuberantly:

"Guess what?"
"what"
"Today, when I was driving home after dropping you off, I thought of the perfect thing to get you for Christmas!"

So he comes over....."What is it?"

"I can't tell you, then it won't be a surprise."

Eye roll. (Middle schoolers are good at eye roll.)

Later, he asks "Did you hide it?"

I reply "I didn't get it yet. I have to wait until the last minute to get it."

"Why?"

I answer as I leave the room.

"Too big to hide."

He screams "I hate you!"




These two batiks are finally done. They both started doing some odd things in the last step, so I stopped. After a while of not working on them and only thinking, I knew what to do. It worked perfectly.
Maura and Jeff can have one of these, they have to pick.
Each one has a sleeve sewn into the top to put a curtain rod. The bird one is exactly 24 inches wide and 39 inches tall. The bird house one is exactly 23 inches wide and 38 inches tall.

OMG those are fabulous batiks. I love the colors and the pattern. Janow would look gorgeous in those colors. I think his photo is cute. He has such a sweet face. Thanks for your comments on my blog. I like the way horse people bond over the love that we have for our ponies.

Great looking batiks. Love the photo of Janow what a beautiful horse with a sweet face and I'm sure sweet personality to match.
