The quilt tale of Mrs. Claus continues

   Mrs. Claus  did a drop in visit to the toy shop today and caught the chief toymaker, Tom, painting a few doll strollers.   See the cradle drying (on its head).....a volunteer artist had been by to do some special  painting for the elves.    A peek into the small room and what did she see?   Doll beds, and cradles, and strollers in all stages of assembly.  


 










 Then back home to find packages on the door step.....full of little quilts.  The stack is growing!

 
Wonderful little quilts from Mrs. Claus in Texas--Nicki from the HGTV Quilt board, Mrs. Claus in FloridaMrs. Claus in Georgia,   Mrs. Claus in Kansas .  Thank you all so much......
   The phone rings......What?  Yes, I think so.
It's that pesky elf again.....the one who is making toy deliveries on TUESDAY!!!!  Yikes, he wants 35 quilts.  Quick do a count, do I have enough for Tuesday?  1,2,3,.....................53 finished quilts!  Yes, we can.    
   Just to let you know, no quilt turned away, all loved, and all are needed.  The toy makers are pulling out all the stops and working in shifts to fill  the toy wishes of little ones across the area.  The first delivery is to The Children's Hospital.  The Ronald McDonald House has sent in a list too, now. 
   This Mrs. Claus has lots to do before she rests--10 more to finish in the workroom, but she wanted to share her thanks and appreciation to each and every one of you--I am trying hard not to overlook  a single one of you---- for helping in this project.   Can you tell I am excited?   Hugs and happy stitching.
