Santa Claus has come to town! I found him at Goodwill, and just couldn't resist. I think he likes the orphan blocks surrounding him. Maybe I'll name this quilt, "Santa and the orphan blocks." Some of these are from my beginning quilt class, six years ago.
Kim got to be the first to tell him about her Christmas list a few weeks ago. She came all the way from Pokeytown, New York!
Did you ever wonder how large the REAL Santa is? According to this "life size" rendition, he's about 44" tall and 13" wide. So THAT'S how he gets down all those chimneys!
A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who offered sweet comfort and great advice about hand pain. I'm sorry to hear that so many suffer from the same thing, and glad to read there is help. Quilt-makers really make a warm, helpful community!
