Smalls SAL - December post

Another year of smalls has come to a close, and I have another 12 small things finished!  I'm pretty proud of this accomplishment.  My track record with large projects may not be so stellar, but this one I can do.
Here is my December contribution - a Prairie Schooler Santa from the "St. Nicholas II" pamphlet.

 As you can see, this was finished as an ornament, and I gave it to my friend who is a fisherman.  This happens to be the same friend for whom I made the latest quilt...and that is completely done now, too!  It was quilted by a wonderful Amish woman who did a beautiful (and fast! It took her just a little more than a week!) job.  Here it is, in all its glory.  Can you see the lovely "waves" she stitched in the borders?  The back is a plain blue-and-brown plaid, and the binding was some brown cotton I had in my stash.  I haven't given it to my friend yet, but I can hardly wait to see his reaction!
