Do As I Say, Not As I Do
Well, I blew it, big time. When I write my directions in my epatterns, I always say 'watch your prims closely when baking them in the oven to make sure they don't burn'. And did I follow my own advice?! No, of course not! I forgot to put the timer on the oven, went back to working on something else and TOTALLY forgot about my poor little angel snowman who was baking away in the oven and this is the result.
Arghh, I am so mad at myself! This little guy was turning out so cute (he's a Threadbare Primitives pattern), I spent so much time embroidering his feather tree and face and making all of his embellishments; I even added some chenille stems inside his angel wings so they were pose-able; and look what I did :O( Stupid, stupid, stupid; as my post title says 'do as I say, not as I do' LOL! I guess he will have to live here with me since I don't think there is a market out there for 'well done' prim snowmen!
On a brighter note, my new Christmas owl shelf sitter turned out much better! Meet Elwin, The Elf Owl.
I love him! I adapted my Who's Who Owl epattern by giving him some elf 'ears' and added his little elf hat and of course the presents and candy cane he is safe guarding for Santa tucked onto his toes. He is now available for sale at my Etsy shop if you are interested and will soon be listed on my selling blog as well.
Well, I must get back to work on my remaining WIP's, I will post some pictures again tomorrow or Saturday with those finishes as well. Have a great day and don't forget to set that oven timer!!
