(As usual, I have the photos rather backward for the text....)

These packages (below) are finally ready for the St. Nicholas evening tea with my friends tomorrow evening. Instead of tissue, I have used sparkly, sheer fabrics. these my artistic friends can re-use in a project!

Behind the packages is a cheerful pillow Santa. We have had him for about 20 years! (A gift from a neighbor...where does time go?)

The quilt in the photo is one I worked on for several years. It was slow going...I would do a block each Christmas season....for 9 years, I think.
It is hand-pieced
and hand quilted red and white
feathered star Christmas quilt.

The shelf of Santas (above) sits near our Christmas tree.
The largest Santa is a doll I made a few years ago from felted wool....and then there is the nesting Santa doll, always a hit with the children!
(by the way, that is the grandaugher's dance recital photo behind the Santas...) Posted by Picasa

The packages look so festive and what a great idea to use the shimmery fabric in place of tissue paper. Also very good for the environment!
