Merry Christmas from the Cuddle Quilter

Just a quick note to thank you all for your wonderful words of well wishes as I mend. There were lots of smiles here as I read your comments and emails. I am still on a thrice daily regime of exercises and a whole lot of decreased activity in my sewing room...argh. Thankfully my "rotary cutting" elbow is on the mend, slowly but surely, bit by bit. Move over tennis and golf elbows...the quilters are here too! Although I can not comment on your blogs due to my one-fingered typing, I am reading them and loving to see what you all have been up to. It is especially fun at Christmas and my "to-do" list grows every day because of your creations!

Under the advice of my health "team", my sewing, quilting, and iPadding activities are still very reduced, with no more than ten minutes at a time, a couple of times a day. Sad face, with no quilty projects to show you. Instead, I thought I would leave you with a Ho! Ho! Ho! and wishes for a Merry Christmas from my wooden Santa and quilt that I first wrote about HERE.

A quick thanks to Karen of KaHolly...she made me the most beautiful Christmas notecards using this image taken right from my blog. 

She sent them to me right before she began her trek to the US. Enjoy the warm weather in Texas, my friend!

Another wonderful blog friend, Linda of Scrapmaster, sent me a lovely Santa postcard...she knows how much I love Santas! Thank you so much, Linda, I hope these Santas will share many Christmases with us!

Yet another thanks goes out to my dear friend from PH. We met for lunch today and she gifted me with an adorable ceramic Santa to add to my collection. He is the tall Santa holding the little tree and has the most welcoming smile. I think he fits very well beside some of his colleagues!

I also want to send thanks to Jenny and Clara, a mother-daughter team who blog at Clover and Violet. I won a giveaway of theirs recently. The prize was a very generous $50 gift certificate that they purchased for me from Southern Fabric.  The fabric treasures have already arrived, just waiting for a healthier arm! 

My ten minutes is now up (actually, it took me two days of several ten-minute segments to write this...I am trying to be good, really I am...) Merry Christmas to all and see you in the New Year!

It's a great day for quilting...for some of you...giggle!
