NOM

Here's what I've been working on. He's not sewn together yet, only clipped together to show what he will look like. I'm still embroidering on his hat and then I'll be done. He has taken forever! Only because I will embroider something then rip it out then try again and rip it out, etc. I've never done the type of embroidery where you fill it in (the animals and mushroom on the bottom). So I don't really know what I'm doing and keep making mistakes. I'm happy with the mushroom and hedgehog but the bird and turtle are not so good. I got the animals from this book. If you've never bought a Japanese embroidery book but love embroidery then you have to get one! They are full of the cutest stuff. The NOM pattern is from here. I now have to make his wife. I also got this and can't wait to make it!
I was thinking he'd make a cute tree topper but I'm not sure I'm ready to take Jack down. He's been our topper for many years.

You'd think I watch many children during the day with all those toys in the background! But no, it's just my two girls making huge messes during the day. That's Frank behind me trying to get in on the love.

I love the nom! I ordered some Bisque ones for the shop. I've been seeing them everywhere, so I'm assuming they're trendy. I have a Surprise for Emily tomorrow!
