    Too cute! Great job with your paper piecing!
    Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift....that's why it's called the present.

    Paper piecing is fun - corners are so perfect. I love your Santas. Why the miniature magazines had to stop I don't know. Lots of people really want them. What would we do without publishers that reprint them in books?

    I would try to do them all different and make the quilting in their beards different too. Great job and good luck

    Personally, I would make black bead eyes and a button nose...Use a little rouge applied with a Qtip for the cheeks and NO mouth......done several this way. I like to think the mouth is hidden in the beard....it will cute with or without features. I love these mini's. Been making a few myself.......originally, I wanted to reduce stash....Ha! Hasn't even made a dimple....LOL!!!

    Love your pattern and you did a super neat job on the piecing Miz Mary! Yay for you & paper piecing!
    For the faces: how about round red noses and little round black eyes with twinkle wrinkles in the corners?

    No eyes, no nose, no smile. It looks great the way it is. Looks clean, gives the imagination room. EE
