"His eyes—how they twinkled! his dimples, how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard on his chin was as white as the snow;
The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke, it encircled his head like a wreath;
He had a broad face and a little round belly
That shook when he laughed, like a bowl full of jelly.
He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself;
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread."
Are you starting to dread the thought of getting to the bottom of your Christmas sewing list? Santa's here with a wink to let you in on a some great hints for wrapping things up early! This jolly old elf will be available as a panel designed by Urban Chiks as part of their Swell Christmas collection for Moda! Simply top-stitch or applique him onto your favorite Christmas background for a quick and easy holiday quilt. We expect panels to arrive here at the shop in early November so keep an eye out for them! They'll dash away, dash away, dash away all - - very quickly!
