It's a production line at my house, a festive season production line....stitched, painted & stained & cinnamoned, dryed in the oven, sandpaper rub down, finishing touches....it smells so yummy at my house....all that coffee and cinnamon....loving these prim guys coming to life out of my studio and my kitchen....
|Prims are in the oven ~ drying off ready for finishing ~ Santa & Elmer (Pineberry Lane)|
I love the look and feel of the muslin (calico in my neck of the woods) when it has been painted and sanded to a lovely smooth but perfectly grungy prim patina....this is what happens to you when you are a snowman and you make it out of the oven....
|Snowman #1 ~ Perfectly Grungy|
|Loving that barrel chest ~|
|Snowman # 2 ~ A statuesque guy at 18" on his Kauri plinth, repurposed|
from our 130 year old church homestead ~
|Poker Face ~|
|Look at that patina ~ loving it!|
|and Snowman #3 ~ a sweet little festive pin cushion ~|
|He's a happy wee chap ~|
Soon the crowd will be two stronger.... Santa and Elma are in the finishing queue....after that I need to knuckle down and finish a quilt as I have two new quilt BOM's starting in 2015....my scissors and applique shapes....here I come....
Happy Festive Time & do watch out for all the prims posing for a collective christmas time selfie next post!
