My little NutCracker.

Hi quilty Friends! 
So I have not been around much lately. I have been checking out all your blogs.....Just had to take a few days to myself ( month off). I have been busy sewing and quilting. I guess you can say I have had a bit of a short attention span. Starting a project, working on it one day and putting it aside and the next day starting a different project the. I do seem to only get small projects done, mug rugs, wall hangings, and pillows.
Speaking about small projects, here is one I just love! It is so cute and went together fast and easy.
This adorable pattern is from Rose over at Threadbare Creations.  The directions were so easy and She writes them step by step. Starting with his head and working down to his toes. 
He is hanging up on a cabinet to add a little cheer as you walk in my back door.  Sorry about the photo quality...its a cold cloudy day here in MI and I just do not want to go outside.
I love the fabric that I used for his pants and the fun red and white fabric that I used for the binding.
Thanks for stopping by. It sure feels good to finish a project, LOL! Until I see you again, wishing you Quilty Hugs ~ Heide
