    Hi all!

    Well, since my machine decided to jam and doesn't feel like working I figured I would do some hand sewing today.

    I stitched this little prince up for a Christmas gift for a coworker. I wasn't sure I would be able to have time to make something for him but I got ahead on the quilts I needed to make and figured I would squeeze this guy in.

    I attached little bells on his "coat buttons."

    I hope he likes him!

    Thanks so much for all your kind comments :)

    Unfortunately my machine is broken :(

    On the plus side, if hubby things the quote to get her fixed is too high I might be able to get a new machine!

    Also, Im going to be selling my serger. I've had it for years and I've never used it! It's brand new!

    I have one of those (someplace)! You must have had the fabric around for awhile! The bells are a great addition...I'll have to add them to mine, as soon as I find it!

    What's not to like?? He's great AND (this is important) he is smiling. A lot of nutcrackers are real mean looking and sorta frightening, while yours is definitely huggable, jingle bells and all.
