Pin cushion

I'm a member of a French-speaking online quilting group, and the list mom suggested a little swap of pin cushions as a holiday activity. This is the little Santa (Père Noël) pin cushion that I made and which is now on his way to a new home. :) 

He's made from wool felt with hand stitching to accent the mustache and beard and French knots to make the holly berries on Santa's hood. I think he's pretty cute and hope his new owner will agree. He's stuffed with a layer of wool batting to keep his shape, but I also put in crushed walnut shells for weight and because I really like them in pin cushions.
