Sharing a picture of this year's, Country Heart's donation to Akron, Ohio's, Children's Hospital Tree Festival!
I usually do this every year, since my son was hospitalized as a toddler, on Christmas Eve......it was devastating to have a baby that was so sick with croup ~ and in the hospital on this night of nights. He was so brave and treated with so much good care...I have always showed them my full appreciation for this service ---with a donation.
My theme for this year was "The Star of Bethlehem Wreath" with three sparkling golden Stars in honor of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In the past I've been surprised & awarded a Ribbon for one of the 'Best of Shows'....which was also an honor and a treasured memory.

Here he is....my only hand created Santa for this year of 2010! He is made from almost one whole, old battered, red & white quilt. My own pattern, and lots of sewn on wool with a hand sculptured face. He is big and ready to be shipped for adoption. May only be making a few more from his pattern. His leather belt was a great find, fits his plump waist to a "T". Comes with brass bells and his own pair of little red mittens, also antiqued several times. Little sheep on wheels and bag of greens is an extra perk, handmade candy canes are sprinkled with diamond dust. Sports an antiqued tag that reads 1861-1865, and a signed and dated sewed on tag. Country Heart's signature heart on his hand ~ says he was made with love, especially for you..... thank you for checking Santa, out, email me if you are interested, firstname.lastname@example.org
This Santa has been sold....contact me if you would like to place an order....Price: $148.00 + postage.
