I am almost finished with a large UT Longhorn Santa (by Carol Dupree). This was my project at a recent retreat at Pocket Full of Stitches in Lubbock, Texas. I'm pretty happy with the way it's turning out. I used a real buckle for his belt...love that! I have a feather for his cap and a UT badge for his jacket. I'm making, or attempting to make, some longhorn buttons for his boots....stay tuned on that one. The first picture is after the turkey-work was stitched but before I trimmed it up....gotta love me some turkey-work!
I will post the completed product soon....complete with a soft blue-gray background. Eventually he will be finished as a weighted stand-up. :) XOXO, Suzanne
