Only 2 months and 3 weeks until Christmas

Boy oh boy!  Between my hubby and I coughing from this crud that is going around, it seems I haven't been getting much done.  

I took a trip to my local quilt shop the other day just for giggles and saw a darling Santa wall hanging that I thought I could make, but they had sold out at the recent quilt Market in Madison.  Fortunately though, they had the accessory kits for it and that's all I needed since the Santa's were the cutest part of the wall hanging anyway.  I thought by making minis, that they make perfect little hostess gifts for the holidays.  Well, once I started, it seemed as though I couldn't stop.  So cute at 6 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches.  Just perfect for some cute little corner!!

Santa Hugs

Like I said....I couldn't stop with one. I did make 10 but 9 looked better on a picture. LOL

Very cute wall hangings and 9 at that! I'm impressed. I've designed a couple of gifts, but have yet to actually get them together.
