Santa's Helper

Santa has left an early Christmas present! No, not just the inspirational backing fabric, but....

Oh my! Could it be a PUPPY?

Oh! This little guy is adorable! And so ready play!

All wiggly and full of excitement - that tail just won't stop wagging!

Santa's Helper - my wiggly tail
Isn't he cute? Such an adorable little fellow - I think I'll name him Santa's Helper!

I still can't believe Santa placed him under the tree.

With so much joy, he's certainly wiggled his way into my heart! Careful - he's coming in for a lick!

Has Santa's Helper wiggled into your heart too? Though I won't give him up, he has litter-mates available for adoption at my Craftsy, Etsy, and Payhip shops. He does require an experienced owner, someone who has had puppies before, and able to deal with applique, paper piecing, and mitering corners. But once that tail starts wagging, he'll be all yours!

Oh! And Santa also left a special note: the Santa's Helper pattern can be purchased at 25% off Dec 4 - 8, 2017, at Payhip. Just use coupon code PUPPYLOVE at checkout.

And over at Pine Needle Quilting, there's a video to see how to quilt a pine tree!

Thank you Santa!
