Yay!!  I got a surprise this morning when my sister called and told me she had 4 Rug Hooking Santa's for me to share.   I have just uploaded them to the website in my "Odds~n~Ends" section.  If you want one, go there now and get it because there are only these FOUR available and only ONE with the draped flag.  She did that one to resemble my Santa 2012 pattern that I recently released.  
I will tell you that these pictures do not do these Santa's justice.  When you see them in person, you just can't believe the amount of work that goes into each and every one.  The "patterns" are made from paper clay that my sister has made to resemble burlap.  She then painted the "pattern" on.  In each of the baskets are pieces of fabric and wool strips, all made from paper clay, as well as a miniature rug hook.  The detail is amazing.  Each Santa is completely hand sculpted from a lump of wet papier mache.  The process is time consuming and detailed.  If you'd like a special Santa made for yourself, please feel free to email her directly at  
Until next time......

About Me

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my blog. I am married and just entering the second phase of my life as a Army retiree's wife. My husband and I did 25+ years in the Army. He is now officially a retired Colonel and has just entered the civilian workforce and I am happily settled in our 1830 Stone house. I (along with my Mom) operate www.theoldtatteredflag and currently we are building a small shop in the back part of the house. We live in Northern NY, right near the Canadian border. I have two handsome sons and 2 puggles. Life is busy for us, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
