My house is a mess. I'm supposed to be baking Christmas cookies. My art room looks like a bomb went off. But my creative side won't let me be! Oh, how she torments my soul! OK. A wee bit dramatic, but I'm trying to get my point across. Work with me people!
"Just let me finish this one last thing," I keep telling myself.
My finished piece is a 9 3/4 inch hand-carved Santa trying to warm himself up in an old quilt.
Three rusted safety pins are stuck through the vintage quilt, adding to its primitive appeal.
I had a few old quilts to choose from to drape over Santa Claus. I chose this one because of its colors - pink, pale lavender, white, green, blue stripes and flowers make him oh so shabby chic!
I like to think Mrs. Claus quilted him this long, long ago and its traveled with him for many years, keeping him warm on his sleigh.
He's up for auction on Ebay, though I'm honestly debating whether to keep him for myself!
