Mr. Claus and the Scroll Saw

Mrs. Claus gave Mr. Claus a scroll saw for Christmas.  Mr. Claus has been pretty much invisible around the house ever since, preferring to play in his workshop.

Mrs. Claus thought the first fruits of handiwork to be amazing - eight gorgeous Christmas ornaments:

Mr. Claus eagerly looked for another project.  As luck would have it, he came upon a pattern that was more than fit and proper for his 92-year-old father-in-law - a retired Lt. Col. from the Air Force:
The Air Force emblem is made from one piece of oak and measures 7 1/2 inches in diameter.  The base is one piece of oak and measures 8 1/2 inches in diameter.

Mrs. Claus was stunned, proud and impressed with the craftsmanship Mr. Claus displayed.  Father-in-law was also duly impressed, displaying it proudly in his family room for all to see.

End of story.

You may ask, "What does this have to do with needle work?"  My reply:  "Absolutely nothing.  I'm just proud of Hubby and had to share."

Now, back to my latest stitching project. Keep yourself surrounded in stitches ~ Cheers ! ~
