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!
