The Quilting Elf

This is the year of the handmade Christmas. I haven't made totally handmade gifts in many, many years. It's just easier to shop, truthfully. But, I am determined to craft each gift specifically for the recipient and this one is my first:

It's for a friend at work. Our party is tonight and this cutie is all wrapped up and ready to go. She has everything she needs to start making quilts- or to inspire my friend to do so.

Here she is in the spotlight! I haven't given her a name. I figure that my friend will. But, we've bonded this little elf and I. I'm glad she's going to a good quilting home. :)
