Quicky!

A little late night quicky!!

I have been working on some ornaments--and did up this in some non-traditional colors. So now I have a big stack of little fuzzy stockings sitting on my coffee table, just waiting to be embroidered. There's a lot of stitching on each little stocking, but I think the end product is worth it!


Joe had his ROTC halloween party this week so we transformed this clean-cut handsome young manInto THIS!!A mix of that guy from KISS, Marilyn Manson, and Rob Zombie! LOL He was thrilled with his new look--and the fact that no one could figure out who he was under all that make-up! He won the best hand-made costume contest! He wasn't very thrilled that the lipstick didn't really wash off that well, and his lips had a definite rosy hue to them the next day! *snicker*

I was going to show off my new feedsack fabrics wallet and bag--but blogger is being a stinker and won't let me load any more pictures.

So, I guess I will just go to bed. Tomorrow our church is having their annual Roast Beef Dinner and I am the official beef dipper (5 years running now!)--They cook and slice up enought roast beef to feed about 1000 people, and I get to sit and put it all in hot au jus to heat it up---ALL OF IT! There really is a knack to it, too much and its tough, too little and it's cold. I guess I do it "just right" because I'm the only one Ron (the guy who runs the show) will let do it. I will stand there for 5 hours and dip beef--sounds fun huh? LOL Blessing to you all--and if you can make it to Duluth--stop in for a delicious roast beef dinner!

Your little stocking ornament is so sweet. What an amazing transformation in terms of the costume--y'all did a great job and he looks really scary to me now. Have fun at your church dinner; if I was nearby I would indeed stop by.

oh my gosh, that stocking is so cute, as for your son. Well, he's cute on a regular day, lol. I'm looking forward to a Halloween party this weekend. I need to paint Nick's hair black, no red lips though. hehe

You BIG DIPPER, you! I used to make French Dip Sandwiches at Disneyland many moons ago. I must say that I served them up with finesse! I don't know why I never got tired of it! Probably because they always looked so yummy!

What a transformation with your son! A bit scary . . .

Your little ornaments are delightful. I would imagine that it is somewhat time intensive.

HUGS, KJ

P.S. BLOGGER HAS BEEN A STINKER on several days of trying to upload photos and clipart. They have been having some issues.

Your stocking is so precious - I love the embroidery! On a different note - the costume is great. You know you have a winner when nobody can guess who!

Your beef dipping reminds me of Lake Woebegone. LOL!

Well dang--I am sad I'm missed the best dipper in town and her roast beef! If my magic broom was only working :)

The transformation of DS is just amazing, he looks great in his costume (and very handsome in his uniform)!

Good idea on using non traditional colors, it would look good on a tree that is done in white, or pink even.
