Awww...

All I can say is "awwwwww - so cute"!


Here is my first FINISHED Christmas ornament for the Trim the Tree Handmade Ornament Swap.  One down - three more to go!  I hope one of my secret partners likes this tiny polar bear!


This little guy is only 3x2.5 inches!  I put an Aurifil spool beside him to show you the scale.  He is from the book Pretty in Patchwork: Holidays [by Quilt Dad!] and is meant to be a full size cushion... but I like making small things and small itty-bitty paper piecing is soothing to me!  Nothing better than working on something cute AND soothing on a blustery, rainy Friday night!


Sorry for the late-night photos - the red is really a deep yummy red.
Linking up with Finish it Friday and Paper Piecing Party.
