Gingerbread Father Christmas by Bethann Scott thestitchfiddler

My wishes for a wonderful Holiday Season are a little later than usual this year. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.

As for me I was quite busy "cleaning out my attic" full of things collected over the years and found myself making several trips to the Goodwill and Salvation Army to donate. I didn't plan on all this sorting, after all I had a Gingerbread Father Christmas to finish. But Father Christmas and his sheep waited patiently on the shelf as I took truck loads to the thrift stores. Many of the items were Christmas decorations that I hoped others would enjoy.

Now that Christmas Day has come and gone, I'm now back to sewing and hope to finish Santa Claus and a few other projects.

Gingerbread Father Christmas is a very handsome fella. I love all his extras. At least you finished yours, I didn't even start one this year! I missed not working on one. Feels good to have a proper clean out once in a while doesn't it.

What a nice way to start the New Year...a clean attic and another wonderful new Father Christmas. Gingerbread Father Christmas is a delightful fellow. I do love your little folk art sheep. Oh, how my Woodsy Father Christmas, Zeke, would love to have one to carry under his arm. Maybe next year...
