Just Be Claus by Robin Kingsley is filled with charming Christmas embroidery designs – adorable santas, presents, Christmas trees, snowmen, and holiday sayings. The embroidery is incorporated into a variety of small projects perfect for holiday home decoration or gift giving. Instructions are given for cute pillows, wall hangings, towels, samplers, Christmas ornaments, pincushions, and table runners. The author also provides basic marking, embroidery, and piecing instructions for the projects – all accompanied by large, clear photos and embroidery diagrams.

I am drawn to the designs because they invoke holiday merriment, and the projects because they are small enough to be doable with a hectic schedule. I especially like the Merry Christmas Sampler and Jolly Santa Quilt; they combine several designs in festive mini-quilts. The Christmas Countdown wall hanging is also clever – blackboard fabric and chalk allow a daily countdown until the big day! I am eager to add Just Be Claus to my quilt library and start a project to enjoy at holiday time.
