More from Mrs. Claus

    Contrary to appearances, I am still around.  :)   And yes, Dana, you are right....... my freezer is full to overflowing with baked items and Thanksgiving dinner preparations.   Actually, it will be  our Christmas time too, as Deana will be starting her new job/position in 3 weeks.  So our table at Thanksgiving will look more like a "groaning board"---- full and overflowing.

  Once again, packages arrived from  Mrs. Claus.  First up is Mrs. Claus from The Virgin Islands.  Karibbean Quilter  is a member of the HGTV message board and she used the cutest fabric for these 2 quilts.  It features Paddington Bear.
  I love her quilting inspiration....outline the circles.  Sometimes, simple is so effective.
Thank you for being a Mrs. Claus.
  Karen has the cutest little tags  that she uses on her quilts.  They are embroidered with a palm tree too.  Look close and you can see one in the bottom corner  of the quilts.

    From Mrs. Claus in Virginia came 2 bright and cheerful doll quilts.  I absolutely am in awe of the bargello one.  The blue and golden yellow combination is so striking  that I want one for myself!    But check out the ducky.....his little beak is dimensional.  A little girl is going to really enjoy this one.     Jo Anne used a variety of straight line quilting on this  and it looks wonderful.   Thank you so much for helping.
    Rudy is quite happy with this last batch of doll quilts.  He loves new additions to protect and watch over.  They make his nose glow just a little brighter.  Rudy adds his thanks to mine and says.....Happy stitching!

How fun to see the variety of quilts you receive. That bargello is amazing!
I love the little Rudy quilt. That was such a clever thing and it just makes me smile!

Oh it is getting to be that time, isn't it? I've gotta get my Mrs. Clause on pretty quickly. Love these additions. I, too, love the blue and yellow.

Little Rudy sure has his job cut out for him as guard deer!

Oh those little quilts from Karribean Quilter are so cute. Thanks so much for posting pictures of them as they come in to you. That little duck quilt just makes me smile every time I look at it & the bargello is beautiful. These quilters sure put a lot of love & time into these precious doll quilts.

It sounds like you are ahead of the game with your freezer stocked with holiday cheer. I want to make cookies & freeze them ahead for Christmas but have never done that before so am a bit scared in case they don't turn out well after they defrost. :( I truly wish Deana well in her new job & I know it is hard for you & her daddy to let her go. {{{HUGS}}} to y'all.

Oh, I'm so glad to see you back, did you need to buy a new freezer? The quilts are all adorable, but I'm in love with your Rudy one. When did you make him? He'd make a cute entry in the Christmas Quilt Show.

All the quilts are lovely but the pineapple one takes my breath away!
