Happy Santa!

I decided I need to doodle again and see what I come up with.
So, I doodled a santa and then made it into a punch.
It is fun to do up a design that I make, to see how it looks worked up, sometimes I like them, sometimes I don't.
I decided to go up in height for his mustache, but the beard looked too flat, so I went back and pulled some out and added some longer heights to the beard and left some shorter. I like how the texture looks.

On the kitty front, Moki is doing well. Izzy has decided to harass him, which means she likes him. She likes to sneak up and attack him, but Moki hasn't learned that it is play;) Dora is really getting out of hand, she is taking out her anger on my house. She is climbing all the cabinets and last night she knocked over a candle holder, good thing it was a thrift buy;) Today I am not sure what she was doing, but I was trying to enjoy a hot bath and heard a crash and found my lap frame, upside down on the floor. The needles left a couple of gauges in the wood. I sure hope she gets over it soon.

I like how your Santa turned out!
I'm going to have to give needlepunch a try some day. I think it's the only craft I haven't done yet. Well probably not, but I can't think of any others right now that I haven't tried. LOL. For now I'll just admire your great work.

You do get so much great stuff done! Share your energy secrets!

Glad Moki is getting comfy with the other kitties. I hope Dora comes around soon.

We have a new boy (within the last few months) outside. Our 3 boys are outside during the day and in the garage at night. One of our boys has been having a hard time adjusting to the new guy. He has the new guy just scared & nervous as all get out. Hopefully he will get use to the new guy soon. He is just a big bully.

Glad Moki is fitting in to your family :). Hopefully they will be playing "together" soon. And maybe Dora will calm down a bit too :)

Hope that Dora calms down soon. Sounds just like kids.

You can almost smell Christmas is the air looking at the Santa.
I'm sure they will all settle down. Pecking orders take time. :-) x x x

I love your Santa - it looks awesome. I tried to needlepunch a while back and wish that I had stuck with it. Seeing your work always makes me want to give it another go.
