The men in my life played Santa this year - and it was a good year!
Sarge is usually tuned in to my feelings and what kind of things make me happy. He gave me this stained glass dragon:
I'm a major fantasy fan and enjoy doodling with dragons of various types.
I've wanted to put a dragon in my blog header for a long time and this guy was just what I needed to get that done. I plan to have lots of fun playing with photos - and watching him "fly" in my studio.
But wait! There's more!
A day or so after Christmas, a large box arrived from Number-One-Son. We already got gift packages. Whatever could that be? I was surprised speechless when I opened the box! And it takes a lot to make me speechless. LOL!
A Singer Model 66 "Red Eye"! Manufactured in 1914 and used until recently to sew quilts. It has pressure feet, needles, and bobbins. And it works! Well, the motor runs. I haven't threaded it to see how it stitches, but I've been told it does a fine job.
I can't get over how beautiful the painting and ornamentation is - and how well it has taken the years.
Even the wheel is decorated!
Thank you, Santa - Sarge - and Number-One-Son. I raised him right. Yes, I did!
