I remember listening to this album all through the 1980's each year during the Christmas season! Now my kids love to listen with me.

Mistletoe has been a required decoration since the little people have been old enough to get the concept of kissing under it! Each year we scramble to the places we know to find it and we are always put off for a week or so because the orders have not yet come in. In reality, the mistletoe we buy isn't very big or even very pretty as it is heavily preserved. So when I saw the pattern for Magical Mistletoe, here, I was thrilled! I worked with Aunt Betty and we made 7 sets. We used wool felt on one side and fabric on the other and used a much lighter fusible stabilizer than recommended. I also opted to use beads rather than the felt balls because of the large number needed for the 7 sets. I have just 2 sets left to bead for each of the kids rooms. I think these are lovely little holiday keepsakes!

After making and trying a tester batch, Annestelle said, "It tastes like Christmas!"
Aren't these jars sweet?
I plan to make a few more batches to give as Christmas gifts this year too!

I don't know why.
Well, I do...
There was that nasty computer virus which resulted in my computer crashing. Lost so many things... sniff...
There was the first grade Halloween Party... Planning activities, organizing volunteers, etc...
Halloween weekend at our house called for fun party food... have pictures, no wait HAD pictures, but well, computer crash...
I've been working on my Secret Santa Christmas Swap present... can't show you that.
I've been knitting on a thing or two... Christmas secrets...
Also, sewing some doll clothes, something I said I would NEVER do. Never say never.
I can't seem to stop reading either....
I'm hoping to be a little more faithful dear blog... no promises though!
Take good care,
