    My Santa "Stocking" for our Guild's Stocking Exchange

    Hey everyone,

    Every year our guild has a stocking exchange and it's a great blast. It's not only always stockings though, beccause some of our members have been around since the guild was founded 22 years ago...so they've probably got enough stockings! Last year I did a Christmas square pillowcase and this year I made this cute santa with his sack...the sack will be the actual stocking that gets chosen and maybe even stolen back and forth until the end. (In our stocking exchange we can either choose a stocking from the table or "steal" a stocking someone has already chosen...we have a minute to do this until the next person is up...as you can imagine it gets a little wild with lots of stealing back and forth!)

    Anyway, here he is: (I'm making a second one for me...not quite done yet though...you can see him on the right)

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Thanks! His hair is actually made of something called "Klempner Hanf" which is basically plumber's hemp used in sealing pipe connections. I just washed it and combed it out.
