Nother Chance @ Xtra Entry ~n~ Ramblin's Of A Sleep Deprived Mind

Hello all my Prim Pals =) Sorry I didn't get anything posted last night =( My youngest son (16) has caught a really bad bug. I hadta' pick him up from school with a 102 temp. His poor eyes were soooo glossy lookin' and his legs were so weak he could hardly stand. He had a poundin' headache and was just sooo miserable. I spent most the night tendin' to 'im. Gettin' meds down 'im and liquids. Got maybe 4 hours sleep last night and had ta' work today =( He does seem a lil better now (2:19 a.m.) He finally went into a deep, restful sleep thank goodness. That's what he needs ! Soooo I thought I better get on here and get somethin' posted !
( I was havin' withdrawals lol)

Well good ol' Jo~Anns ( whom I like to affectionatly call Jo's lol) sent me out another one a those burn a hole in your wallet and ya gotta buy more than 1 item (least I always do lol) coupons ! I just can't seem to wait to use 'em ! So after work the other day I just had ta make a trip there. Jo's had in some new lovely Christmas fabrics
(I hadta' pick up a few yards !)
I just love love loveeeee (did I stress that enough ?) these beautifuuulllllll toile fabrics..... One is a lovely red shade and the other is more a burgundy....well just check out the pics and see for yourself =)

Wish I woulda' got better pictures ! This fabric is called Nativity Toile. It's really beautiful. Here's a few more pics...

The next one is more of a red. It's called Season's Greetings.

Another scene...

One more.....

Can't wait to make somethin' with these.... Any ideas ?

I also finished yp my Santa head and I really like how he turned out. I put ALOT of lambs wool on him. No skimpin'.

This shows what he'd look like on a rusty spring. I haven't attached 'im yet. Although this way he would make a pretty neat Christmas tree topper....hmmmm

Here he is on a wooden black candle holder. I'm just not sure how ta' finish 'im off ! Or I could just leave 'im as an ornie/bowl filler/cabinet tuck ? What do ya'll think ?

All righty now onto entry standins.....They are as follows.......

I am loving that fabric and I have the bottom your Santa you made..he would make a great tree topper..go to the floral department at either joanns or Michaels..(I found them at Michaels) they are thick cardboard cones..they come in a pack of 3 in green can cover it with fabric or decopauge and attach to your santa for a tree topper..they work so well...very sturdy too..okay I am thankful for a fridge/pantry full of food. our kittys and stinky puppy, our good health, my hubbys great job and pension, the good lord up above for without him..I don't know where I would be..I know he loves me and watches over blogging buddys too..have a wonderful day..:) glad to hear your son is feeling better...hope you got some rest too.:)
