Across the country, around the globe

  Mrs. Claus is industrious.  Mrs. Claus is well traveled.  Mrs. Claus is generous, and kind.  Mrs. Claus is a quilter!  And I have the proof.....

  First came a package from Minnesota, about 2,000 miles it traveled to reach the home base for the Get Your Mrs. Claus On project.    Mrs. Claus from Minnesota, aka Wenanah, is a member of the HGTV Message board.  She wanted to add a little softness to our collection of doll quilts this year, and she chose to use some colorful minkee fabrics.  She added decorative stitching along the edge to finish this one.  It turned out so cute.   Wenanah sent this to represent the sate of South Dakota.

    Then a package arrived that was overloaded with postage.  I mean half of the front of the envelope was postage.  Care to take a guess how far it traveled?  Nope, I bet you missed.  I did a little research on line and discovered that these little doll quilts traveled about 11,500 miles!!!!
    Mrs. Claus of Australia, aka Shirlwin, is also a member of the HGTV Message board.  I was absolutely shocked to see all these cuties.  Shirlwin did a beautiful job, and even added some hand quilting to them.  I love them all and could not pick a favorite.

  Both of these packages arrived just in time for the organizational meeting of the toy making elves at the Greenville Woodworkers Guild.   So naturally, I took them to show the elves.  Just a little nudge  :)   A single comment from one of elves says it all....."Boy, we better get busy before they show us up."
  Mrs. Claus, you are amazing!!  Thank you all so much for your help and support.  I just love it when a plan comes together......happy stitching.


  1. Ooooh, they are all so beautiful!

  2. What a treat to see--and I love the comment from the elf!! : )

  3. It's always so great to see all of the baby quilts, that comment could be taken as a challenge, you may be flooded with quilts, LOL

  4. Now what doll wouldn't want to snuggle up under such pretty quilts. It sounds like you lit a fire under the elves when you showed them the quilts. hehehehe
