Santa Completed

Well I finished this little santa. I will be mounting him on a door hanger. I think he turned out kind of cute. The chart came from an old magazine I had. I left a couple of things off to make him skinny enough for my door hanger. I hope you enjoy him.

There is a Difference in Paint

I found out the hard way this weekend that there is a difference in acrylic paint. I bought some lovely Americana red paint to paint a door hanger for a new hanger I am planning. After waisting 3 yes thats 3 wooden door hangers (thank god they are only .89 cents.)I called Michaels and found out that Yes there is a difference between Delta ceramcoat and Americana. Ceramcoat is thicker. Well I started to put a coat on tonight of red ceramcoat and low and behold that is definately true. You live some you learn some. I will post a pic as soon as the stitching for my santa door hanger is finished. I am currently backstitching at the moment. Hes going to be a cutie ... stay tuned.

Small Finish and Midterms

Well I took my midterm this morning. I think (translate hope and pray) that I got at least 75-80 out of 100. I will be very happy with this grade as it translates into a better grade with the curve. The other night I took a couple hours out of studying and was able to finish another small stitch. This is a pine mountain kit called Noah and his crew. It turned out rather nice for just a couple of hours work.

Paul went trick or treating last night. Paul is the one dressed as Darth Vader. Made out like a bandit. He was in bed when I got home tonight. Thursday's I attend two classes, one in the morning then work, then one in the evening. So thursdays are not my favorite day.

Have a great night.
