12 Days of Christmas – 7

Hi Quilting Friends,

Welcome to our “12 Days of Christmas” blog series! We’re glad you’ve joined us.

Every Christmas I enjoy all my favorite Christmas songs.  On the top of my list is “I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas”.

Today we’re featuring our favorite hippopotamus, who just happens to be a prima ballerina.

Before she became a famous dancer, Miss Hippopotamus hung out with all the other critters who were learning how to dance to classics like the Nutcracker.

They look like a wild bunch, but I still want a hippopotamus for Christmas! (Either that or a longarm quilting machine LOL!) What’s on your Christmas wish list this year?

  1. these are adorable. I am hoping for a hand mixer. The kind that is held in one hand. And a tool that suctions to my quilting ruler.
