|Preparing the applique pieces.|
|Father Christmas and his tree.|

|I use silk thread to do the applique.|
I thought I would share some of the WIP photos, as well as the finished Father Christmas.
This is an excessively labour intensive project, but it's just the sort of thing I like to tackle.
This part doll/part quilt.
It is designed to hang, not sit.
At the moment, he is hanging out on the stairs with the garland and the Van Craig dancing girl ornaments. The jolly old elf seems quite content with the company. I hope Mrs. Claus doesn't get wind of this.
|This little bird is so sweet. It took forever!|
