By now you know how much I love Christmas, everything about it! I love the anticipation, the planning, and the spirit of the season. I love the visits from family and friends, love the phone calls to keep in touch with those that can't make it home, and particularly love all the hugs! (I am a hugger and proud of it!).
The Christmas music is playing, the baking is being done, the gifts are being wrapped, and the visiting of family and friends has begun.
And of course you know I love Santas! Years ago, even while still quilting, I was also a pretty busy tole painter. I would register for classes offered in the community and Woodworker Hubby would cut the shapes and make the furniture for me to paint. I tole painted trays, clocks, shelves, ornaments, cabinets and more. But my favorite items were always the Santas. So I share some of them here with you.
I think my computer will also take a rest for the next week or so. So at this time, I wish you all the Merriest of Christmases and hope that you will enjoy the comfort of friends and family during this most precious of times.
It's a great day for quilting!
